Student Teaching Abroad Program.
Moorhead State Univ., Minn.
The program described in this document is designed to give student teachers an opportunity to enrich their general background and their specialized interest while gaining an experience as a teacher in an environment which will give them new and varied opportunities to observe teaching methods. The first 11 students were placed overseas in January 1969, and a total of 70 students from nine institutions have since taken part in the program. English is used in all the participating schools, but the cultural backgrounds vary greatly. The foreign center for the program is the International Schools Association in Geneva, Switzerland, and faculty members from Morehead State College visit Europe each year. The program is regarded as an important first step in the development of an international program centered around the clinical experience, which promotes international understanding at both the cognitive and affective levels by immersing the student in a unique experience in a foreign country. Included in the document are a table showing the placement of students, a copy of the application form and the recommendation form, the first draft of a handbook, "Student Teaching Abroad," and a randomly selected example of a report from a program participant on her teaching experience during the winter quarter of 1970.
