Morgan, Argiro L.
This report describes the revisions and innovations accomplished by Xavier University in its elementary teacher education program, after a year's study of the program models of the Comprehensive Elementary Teacher Education Models Project sponsored by the U.S. Office of Education in 1968. Chapter 1 contains a statement of the ideas and approaches deemed most significant in the program models, namely systems analysis, competency-based instruction, and field-centered pre-professional experience. The strengths of the program models are discussed. Chapter 3 contains a summary of the revision to the Xavier University curriculum during the 1970-71 session, and 47 modules of a language arts component are described in detail. Conferences and meetings attended by the staff are listed. Clinical experiences, accompanied by the report forms completed by students, are enumerated. Chapter 3 contains a brief conclusion to the study and indicates the general direction in which the Department of Elementary Education of Xavier University will move in 1971-72 in the revision of its program in order to prepare dynamic, intelligent, flexible, and well-educated elementary school teachers for the decades ahead.
