Experimental Model for Teacher Education.
Washington Univ., Seattle. Tri-University Project in Elementary Education.
the Experimental Model for Teacher Education at the University of Washington is designed to serve as an elementary teacher education laboratory for twelve experienced teacher participants, nine post-doctoral and three pre-doctoral participants. The laboratory applies experience and training of the project's participants to the training of 19 prospective teachers (interns) and 16 prospective clinical associates (cooperating teachers). The emphases of the project are: a) performance criteria, b) a field-based program, c) a tighter relationship between educational theory and classroom practice, and d) more intensive classroom experience. The personnel involved in the project and the replication of instructional services add to the budget expenses. The project's implementation of new trends aid in the improvement of teacher education. Experienced teacher participants are chiefly responsible for intern evaluation. Charts describing the organization of the project and the teaching competency model are presented along with tasks and criteria for classroom management. (BRB)
