Elementary Teacher Education Program.
Indiana State Univ., Terre Haute. Elementary Education Dept.
The first two years of the Indiana State University Elementary Teacher Education Program (I.S.U.E.T.E.P.) emphasize the basic bachelor degree requirements so as to provide each student with a balanced and adequately developed program of general education. The last two years of the student's training stress professional education. The second phase is designed to intensify the student's examination of the teacher's task and to allow him to focus specifically on teaching children and to develop the necessary skills, abilities, and attitudes. The professional education courses are blocked into four sequential blocks. Block one occurs in freshman or sophomore years and provides initial experiences in working with children while taking course work in child psychology. Blocks two and three combine the professional methods courses. Block four involves the student in student teaching for a semester during which time he is supported by the faculty through continuing seminar work. This assistance is taken to the student, while in a live classroom situation, through the establishment of student teaching centers. (Appendixes include related program material.) (Author/MJM)
