The Teacher Education Center Concept. A Unifying Approval to Teacher Education.
Collins, James F.
This slide-tape presentation, with accompanying manuscript, describes the physical make-up and the functions of a teacher education center. According to the presentation, a teacher education center is a cluster of two or three geographically contiguous elementary or secondary schools. It is administered by a coordinator who is selected jointly by all partners in the center--public schools, teacher education institutions, and possibly also professional associations and the state department of education. The center provides a variety of student teaching experiences for preservice teachers and courses in supervisory techniques for cooperating teachers. One of its major objectives is to involve public school personnel in teacher education and to involve university personnel in curriculum development in the schools. (RT)
