The Origin, Development, and Implementation of the Clark College Elementary Teacher Education Model. Final Report
Dove, Pearlie C.; Davis, Rebecca E.
The Clark College Elementary Teacher Education Models (CCETEM) is an emerging curriculum design for an undergraduate, liberal arts institution serving mostly black students. It encompasses commitments 1) to strengthen components of the curriculum which have been found to be effective in preparing teachers for rendering needed services in predominantly urban, ghetto, and rural schools; and 2) to field test innovative ideas proposed in Institutional Self Studies and USOE Models. This report summarizes a four-year college-wide curriculum study of the institution's teacher education programs. The topics covered are 1) origin of CCETEM; 2) development of CCETEM; 3) implementation of professional laboratory experiences, freshman year component; 4) progress made in implementing other components of CCETEM; and 5) conclusion and summary. Special features include 1) instructional curriculum with proper division of work in general education, professional education, and academic concentrations; 2) coordinate clinical laboratory experiences, freshman through senior years; 3) training complex center; and 4) coalitions with institutions and organizations in recognition of the task of improving teacher education. It is envisioned that these experiences will result in optimum performance of preservice trainees as well as motivate them to acquire the competencies needed for successful teaching. (Author)
