Intern Teachers and Student Teacher at the University of California, Berkeley: A Comparative Study.
Stone, James C.
This study compared students in Berkeley's four postgraduate teacher education programs, which are a) student teaching--elementary; b) elementary internship; c) student teaching--secondary; and d) secondary internship. The impact of each curriculum on the students was investigated through the Terman Concept Mastery Test, Omnibus Personality Inventory (OPI), Strong Vocational Interest Blank, and Crossman Q Sort. Biodata were secured upon entry into one of the programs, and the OPI and the Q Sort were readministered upon completion of the program. Findings revealed that the two intern programs had a) more minority students; b) older, married students; c) math and science majors; and d) students with long-term professional goals. All held liberal attitudes toward teaching and learning. On the OPI posttest, all four groups changed. The interns more than the student teachers changed in liberal direction. The secondary interns changed in a more conservative direction. The Q Sort revealed that all groups scored on the progressive education side, with the two internship groups moving significantly in a progressive direction. (The appendixes include sampling procedures, demographic data, instructions for the Q Sort, and the correlation matrix for OPI and Q Sort. Thirty tables of statistical data are included along with seven figures and one chart.) (Author/BRB)
