School-University Cooperation: A Search for New Structures in Teacher Education.
Travers, Kenneth J.
A clinical approach to teacher education used at the University of Illinois is described. It is characterized by the following: (1) a broad basis for providing input (using ideas of inservice teachers, professors, and undergraduate students); (2) continuity of professional education (involving inservice teachers in seminars); (3) team approach to professional education (seminars involving those referred to in (1) above, and the student teacher is not an apprentice but an active member of the team); (4) variety of experiences (elementary through senior high school and low-achieving to advanced classes); (5) individualized training (flexible assignments and responsibilities for students); and (6) "mini-teaching" (two or three teachers to a group of five or six students). One semester is devoted to the program having the above qualities. Appendices include discussion of mini-teaching, objectives, and conditions. (JG)
