The Feasibility of the Georgia Educational Model for Teacher Preparation--Elementary. Volume I; Basic Report. Final Report.
Johnson, Charles E., Ed.; Shearron, Gilbert F., Ed.
This first volume of a three-volume feasibility report on the Georgia model for elementary teacher education outlines the procedures used in conducting the study, and presents the theoretical considerations involved. The engineering strategy proposed for a 5-year development program is summarized, the essential characteristics of the program in relation to selected theoretical considerations are described, and the proposed implementation strategy is presented through a series of flow charts and timelines. Chapters 4, 5, and 6 briefly summarize the components of the subsystems, followed by the results of investigations designed to establish their feasibility, and the strategy proposed for the development of the subsystems is presented. Chapter 7 deals with economic feasibility, explaining how this was determined, summarizing the cost for development and sustained operation, and exploring the feasibility of development and operation costs. It also explores the possibility if the number of alternate paths for learning activities should be reduced, and investigates the cost of each phase of the program model independently. The conclusions of the study indicate that strategy presented is feasible provided that the necessary funds are made available. An appendix contains related data. (See also SP 004 182.) (MBM)
