[The Teacher Education Program at Mars Hill College.]
Mars Hill Coll., NC.
This paper reported the development of the elementary teacher education program at Mars Hill College from 1968 through 1972. The objectives of the program included giving students a full year of exposure to teaching so they could judge their suitability for the profession; making courses more meaningful through integration of theory and practice; allowing public school personnel more involvement in teacher education; making the elementary education program more selective; and providing public school teachers inexpensive help in the classroom. These objectives were achieved through a junior year internship program, a tutorial program, and an Upward Bound Program. A month to month development of each program was given. The program description focused on the internship program which operated in two schools, the Burton Grove School and the Glen Arden School. The interns were assigned to self-contained classrooms at Burton Grove and to teams at Glen Arden. All students received course credit for the internship and the curriculum was adjusted to enable students to graduate within 4 years. The budget was included in the report along with procedures for evaluation of the program. Appendixes with background information on the Program form the major part of the document. (BRB)
