A Process for Becoming a Teacher.
Benedict, Paul L.
This secondary teacher education program is based on the following assumptions: a) learning is accomplished through the individual; b) learning is a personal concern; c) learning occurs through exploration and experimentation; and d) learning is a blend of experiences, hopes, and ideas. Jointly sponsored by RHAM High School and the Secondary Education Department at Eastern Connecticut State College, the program focuses on the development of the participant in relation to his own and society's purposes in secondary education, the participant as a teacher and human being, his relationship with his students, the nature of the learning process, and the nature and content of his major field of study. These objectives are implemented through university course work, seminars, a 4-hour per week practicum at RHAM High School (which is lengthened to a full-time field experience) and independent study. Four more schools have become involved in the program during the academic year 1972-73, and a program for evaluation is being designed. (BRB)
