Training and Education.
Caldwell, M. Milford
This article described a preservice elementary teacher education program at Delaware State College initiated in 1969. The proposed objectives of the program included 1) an improved program for training teachers, 2) an opportunity for more agencies to be involved in teacher training, 3) a program geared to minority groups who in the past have been a high risk potential, and 4) a training program which would be a model to recommend changes in the present teacher program at the college. The program was divided into three overlapping parts: field experience, content, and professional education. All courses relating to these segments were presented along with course load schedules for average and exceptional students. A high school diploma was not a requirement for entrance into the program. Tutoring and counseling services were initiated for the students and the Teach-Test-Reteach (T-T-Rt) method of teaching was applied. The requirements of teacher selection focused on the ability of the teacher to communicate with the participants. The program was designed to meet training needs of the participants and the present day needs of the classroom teacher. (BRB)
