Preparation of Secondary School Teachers: A Mutual Effort.
Mainey, Richard L.
The involvement of public school personnel in the education of secondary school teachers was weighed over a period of 4 years in this report. Constructive questions were formulated from interpretation of the data collected. The question of whether university course work should precede public school observation and participation was discussed. It was accepted that both should occur concurrently. It was also accepted that an undergraduate should begin professional participation no earlier than second semester of the sophomore year, and perhaps not until the junior year. The schools or districts involved in this participation should be chosen carefully to insure a maximum benefit for the undergraduate and the public school. The attitudes of the teachers toward the preservice students should also be studied. The question of the establishment of clinical professorships suggested a balanced program for public school and university staffs. A general methods class would be taught in the university; a subject oriented methods class would be taught in the public schools; a student teaching experience would involve both staffs. The conclusion of the report focused on the need for a mutual effort by university and public school staff to identify and assist one another in the solution of problems in secondary school teacher education.
