An Evaluation of the Experimental Teacher Preparation Program in Urban Education.
Gibboney, Richard A.; And Others
This study describes and evaluates the first year of a 2-year masters degree urban teacher education program. The first year consists of four separate components, each of which is evaluated separately on the basis of previously stated objectives. The first component, Community Orientation and Study, involves a 6-week living experience in the inner city while working for the Young Great Society, a Black community organization. Evaluation of this component, according to questionnaires filled out by participating students, indicated that most objectives were met. The second component, a 1-semester microteaching course, was evaluated by questionnaires and interaction analysis of videotapes. Again, most objectives were achieved. The third component, Practicum in Teaching, a 1-semester teaching experience at an experimental school, was evaluated by questionnaires and classroom observation. The evaluation showed that most objectives were met. The fourth component, Practicum at the Pennsylvania Advancement School, was evaluated by questionnaire only. This was felt to be the least useful part of the program. (An appendix contains lists of objectives and questionnaires used in the evaluation.) (RT)
