A Prototype Program for Teacher Education. Director's Final Report.
Quill, William G.
The idea for a program which would enable interested and capable inner-city residents to enter a performance-oriented teacher preparation program culminating in an undergraduate degree and teacher certification was suggested and developed by representatives of two privately operated community schools in the Roxbury section of Boston, the New School for Children and the Roxbury Community School, and Northeastern University. During a 6-month trial implementation period, intern teachers taught in their respective schools three days a week, and University faculty, school principals, and interns met 2 days each week for planning and instructional seminars. In these seminars portions of undergraduate and elementary school curriculum components were devised and incorporated into an evolving program. Many problems in interpersonal relations were encountered during this period, and the program eventually lost its funding in June 1970. (RT)
