Job Corps: An Educational Alternative.
Hemsing, Esther D., Ed.
The Job Corps Student Teaching Project is a combined effort of Job Corps and the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education. A major difference between traditional school settings and Job Corps centers is that the center is a full-time, round-the-clock program which provides food, clothing, lodging, counseling, medical care, and recreation--plus basic and vocational education; the program often accommodates teacher trainees in dormitories as well. The teacher trainee is a college undergraduate who is asked to serve as a resource person and consultant, rather than fill the traditional teacher role of presenter of information. The students he teaches are probably dropouts, 16 to 21 years old, usually in need of remedial work. (The document describes methods of recruitment and selection; orientation; supervision; project seminars; and impact on the student teacher, teacher training institution, and professional community.)
