[Undergraduate Experimental Program.]
Virginia Univ., Charlottesville. School of Education.
This experimental junior-year teacher education program at the School of Education of the University of Virginia has been open to a sample of junior-year students for the past 2 years and is currently in its third year of field experience as an integration of theory and practice. It has served as a vehicle for developing and attempting to implement a new model of collaboration among university faculty, university students, and public school personnel. The basic assumptions of the model are a) that each of these parties must have the freedom to identify their basic needs and objectives, and the responsibility for accomplishing these; and b) that real success comes through collaborative, not individual, accomplishment. (Included in this program description are accounts of the program's content, rationale, mediating experiences, and evaluation. Also included is a proposed new model for collaboration.) (Author/JA)
