Directors' Evaluation of Urban Instructional Training and Development Institute, Essex County College.
Essex County Coll., Newark, NJ.
This is a second-year report on a program to train college graduates for community college teaching functions with low-income and urban minority students. Four purposes of the program are listed: a) to help train future community college teachers in innovative teaching styles, b) to raise the level of sensitivity among this potentially professional group, c) to create a human reservoir of talented and experienced community-level teachers who are able to cope with education in the deprived urban environment, and d) to facilitate the graduate education of these teachers. The report indicates that the training towards these goals is incorporated into a three-part program: graduate enrollment in a participating college; participation in a community-oriented program, and placement as assistant teachers at the undergraduate level (including remedial teaching in English and Sci-Math). Appendixes include general correspondence and a program layout of community work. (Author/JA)
