Student Attitudes Toward the Teacher Preparation Program of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln: 1970-71.
Kelley, Edgar A.; Walter, L. James
A study was conducted to determine differences between teachers trained in the Nebraska University Secondary Teacher Education Projects (NUSTEP) and those trained in a standard program. The NUSTEP program was composed of three classes which were also offered in the standard program; NUSTEP students, however, practiced teaching skills using videotaped microteaching techniques. Use of these methods in the regular program was sporadic or nonexistent. Two teacher preparation questionnaires were created to measure differences in attitude and use of innovative practices. Results indicated that further studies with firmer parametric controls are needed to determine whether NUSTEP students categorically have improved attitudes and teaching skills. Tendencies were indicated, however, that show a positive attitude toward the NUSTEP program by the participating students. (Six tables of data are included.) (JB)
