An Experimental Approach for the Personalization of a Teacher Education Program. Final Report.
Rockarts, Dorothea Grace
This project attempted to design an experimental model for a teacher education program in the College of Education of the University of Alabama. The model attempted to identify students' concerns and problems and to test a novel approach for personalizing their programs through the inclusion of microteaching. Three distinct stages were included. Stage I, the sophomore year, included the administration of a battery of personality and personal preference tests. Stage II, the junior year, consisted of the experimental methods course, the initial counseling session, additional counseling sessions, and a terminal battery of tests. Stage III, the junior/senior year, consisted of follow-up evaluations by cooperating teachers and high school students. The success of the project is best reflected in the concern for students evident in the performance of student teachers who had participated in this project. (An appendix detailing the program comprises 50 percent of the document.) (Author/JB)
