A Model for Cooperative Student Teaching Involving a Nearby Majority Black University and a Nearby Majority White University.
Mercer, Walter A.
Major features of the cooperative student teaching model include 1) a pattern of student teaching assignments within the school system which would provide for proportional inclusion of prospective teachers--from the nearby majority black university and the nearby majority white university--to each school serving as a student teaching facility; 2) student teaching seminars participated in by both universities; 3) inclusion of intergroup relations content; 4) participation of supervising teachers, both black and white. Implementation involves planning and followup meetings with student teaching personnel of both universities and the school system. Student teachers and supervising teachers would be familiarized with the project at an orientation dinner meeting. A series of five seminars for student teachers (two all-day and three half-day) would focus on 1) Intergroup Relations in the Desegregated School, 2) Utilization of Mass Media in the Desegregated School, 3) Classroom Management, Control, and Discipline in the Desegregated School, 4) Affective Classroom Climate in the Desegregated School, and 5) Project Evaluation. Learning activities include interest area small discussion groups of approximately 15 prospective teachers (e.g., in elementary education, math, social studies). A program based on this model will soon be in operation in Leon County, Florida, with Florida A & M and Florida State Universities participating. (JS)
