Project Merge 1974.
Bowling Green State Univ., OH.
Project Merge is a cooperative, field-based in-service and preservice teacher education program; it is a systematic field based, cooperative approach to teacher education, instruction, and curriculum development. The project has been field validated and is competency based. It has three interrelated phases: a) an in-service program which affects the renewal and enhancement of the contract teacher's competencies consistent with the demands for flexible functioning in a constantly changing educational age; b) a preservice element dedicated to producing a beginning teacher capable of functioning across traditional categorical lines and of adjusting to evolving change; and c) a graduate aspect related to the production of a cadre of young personnel who can assume a leadership role in the upgrading of teacher education programs. The focus of Project Merge involves changing curriculum so that learning becomes more direct, efficient, and relevant to current educational needs. (Author/JB)
