Project Follow-Up: A Model for Developing Professional Competencies in First Year Teachers.
Shepherd, Terry; Quisenberry, Nancy
This document outlines an in-service teacher education program designed by Southern Illinois University (SIU) to benefit the first-year teacher. The following specific objectives of the project are reported: a) to provide first-year teachers with on-location, individualized assistance; b) to help teachers identify and investigate problems of teaching independently (without credit) and to offer courses as part of a continuing education program for credit; c) to provide continuous evaluation of the university's teacher education program; and d) to provide service to former SIU students and to the communities in which they work. The writers believe this project to be unique because of its involvement of the same preservice students in an ongoing in-service program. (JB)
