The AACTE-Job Corps Teacher Education Project. A Final Examination.
Lang, Duaine C.; And Others
This document describes the results of a survey of former student teacher and counselor participants in the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education Job Corps Project, which developed laboratory experiences for preservice teachers. The survey instrument, which is appended, was a questionnaire based on responses of project directors; it was sent to a random sampling of participants. Each chapter of the document presents tables and descriptive summaries under specific subject headings that reflect the personal history and attitudes of the student teachers. The subject headings are as follows: demographic data (Who are they? What are they doing now?); reasons for participation; values of experience (most frequently, exposure to materials and techniques not otherwise available, opportunity for personal growth, and better understanding of problems of disadvantaged youth); limitations of experience; and implications for participant selection and design. The appendix includes an alphabetical listing of the job corps centers by state. (Related document is SP 006 770.) (JA)
