Blueprints for Teacher Education: A Review of Phase II Proposals for the USOE Comprehensive Elementary Teacher Education (CETEM) Program. Final Report.
Cruickshank, Donald R.
The proposals from 27 of 34 applicants for Phase II of the USOE Comprehensive Elementary Teacher Education Model (CETEM) program were reviewed to determine 1) what kinds of institutions participated, 2) how responsive applicants were to guidelines, 3) which Phase I programs Phase II applicants found most useful, 4) what were some major and common features of Phase II programs, 5) how applicants felt about Phase II competition. It was found that applicants were mostly state colleges and universities; that applicants varied considerably in how they responded to guidelines but taken together they were strongest in describing programatic features; that the Phase I work of Michigan State, Syracuse, Massachusetts, and Florida State was most useful; that there was agreement on a host of teacher education program features; and that applicants felt Phase II competition was exhilarating but that whether there was fair competition or not was dubious. Conclusions drawn include that Phase II applicants did provide a blueprint for teacher education requiring dissemination and support and that USOE must plan more efficiently and communicate more effectively.
