Teacher Corps at New Mexico State University. Final Narrative Report: Cycle II.
Short, Evelyn H.
Goals for the 2-year program were 1) to provide immediate assistance to disadvantaged youth at an early age from teacher-interns specially equipped to diagnose their student needs and provide appropriate learning experiences; 2) to provide sufficiently strong preparation for teaching so that interns will achieve enough success to desire to continue teaching disadvantaged youth; 3) to try new approaches leading to progressive development of more effective and efficient teacher education programs. Preservice began with 28 corpsmen in laboratory and seminar classes which emphasized exploring the world of the public school classroom. Inservice combined internship in the elementary schools with campus classes, the two running in parallel sequences of subject matter: reading, math, social studies, science, and physical education. More theoretical courses were reserved for summer to give interns a chance to synthesize their learnings. Program effects on the university include three new courses in the curriculum and greater use of interdepartmental team teaching and video tape equipment. The impact on the schools was also strong particularly in areas of teacher knowledge of new methods and materials, and practice of team teaching. Corpsmen participated in diversified and individualized community activity. Evaluation methods included oral exams, National Teacher Exams, and teaching effectiveness ratings. The program was clearly successful. (JS)
