A Comprehensive Program for the Training of Elementary School Teachers at Shaw University. Final Report, Part I.
Shaw Univ., Raleigh, NC.
This report contains a description of the current elementary teacher education program at Shaw University; a brief summary of each of the nine U.S. Office of Education models for elementary teacher education programs; review and synthesis of concepts in the three models (Florida State, Georgia, and Massachusetts) most applicable in redeveloping the Shaw program; description of proposed changes in the undergraduate program; and description of a proposed fifth year master's program in elementary education. Conclusions and recommendations deal with 1) use of behavioral goals and student participation in planning; 2) applicant screening and guidance service geared to self-adjustment; 3) individualized instruction; 4) focus on specific learning competencies: evaluation of learning goals, a knowledge of pupil achievement levels, understanding of the learner's characteristics, long- and short-range planning techniques, and self-development techniques; 5) a clinical program that is developmental in nature; 6) use of some aspects of consortium-type planning; 7) a 5-year program with six professional components; methods and curriculum, child development, teaching theory and practice, professional sensitivity training, social and cultural foundations, and self-directed components; and 8) a conceptual type of program structure which would include controlling knowledge, actualizing the self, shaping the school, making and executing teaching strategies, and creating an interpersonal climate.
