Cooperative Program in Teacher Education: Model for an Educational Complex.
Strowbridge, E. D.
This cooperative program between three elementary schools and the Oregon State University Division of Elementary Education provides a complete program of teacher education from college sophomore level to inservice for supervising teachers. It is committed to the development of new approaches such as multi-graded classrooms, individualized instruction, and team teaching. The preservice teachers participate in classroom activities for 4 half-days each week at the sophomore and junior levels, with the remainder of the day devoted to seminars taught primarily by college staff. Student teachers work full-time in the classroom for one semester. The resident teacher experience is for students who have completed student teaching, but desire additional experience in the classroom; it is similar to internship. A two-course inservice sequence in instruction and supervision is available for cooperating teachers. An important factor in the success of the program is considered to be the two joint university-school appointments, one a classroom teacher, and one a school of education staff member. Data is presently being collected for evaluation of the program. (RT)
