A Cooperative Program in Teacher Education.
Wise, Pauline K.; And Others
An innovative program of teaching language arts, reading, and general curriculum to preservice elementary school teachers involved cooperation between Norfolk City Schools and Old Dominion University, Norfolk, Virginia. Student participation was divided thus: 26 hours spent in the elementary schools, 30 hours in seminars, and 76 hours in large-group activities. Workshops and field trips were also held. Team teaching, differentiated staffing, and small-group colloquia were the teaching techniques used in the program. Interim planning, schedule revision, and evaluation and student conferences were held weekly. Student and faculty objectives were the basis for specific implementation of the program. Evaluation of the program included a pre- and posttest on the Minnesota Teacher Attitude Inventory, a pre- and post interview, and informal appraisal of the course by students and involved faculty. Results showed an increase of desirable attitudes in students. Favorable comments on the program were made by students and faculty members. Recommendations were made for changes in the next phase of the program. (BRB)
