The Final Report to the Sears Foundation Containing Proposed Revisions of the Elementary Teacher Education Program at Chicago State University.
Chicago State Univ., IL.
These revisions arose from two major concerns: the lack of quality education evidence among many low-income, minority group children living in urban settings and the ambiguity concerning the nature and extent of relationships between teacher training efforts and a child's learning. This proposal examines the possible relationships between preservice experiences and pupil achievement. Several goals are presented including the establishment of a program to provide systematic information regarding relationships between input and outcomes of the teaching-learning process with selection of appropriate inputs to follow. The child-learner was the final criterion for developing and evaluating competencies of both teacher trainees and participating Chicago State University faculty. Four major inputs are proposed: a) competency-based instructional format, b) individualization of instruction, c) development of psycho-social transaction skills, and d) increased participation in field experiences in appropriate settings for prospective teachers.
