An Experimental Student Teaching/Differentiated Staffing Program.
Tennessee Univ., Chattanooga.
The Experimental Student Teaching/Differentiated Staffing Program involved hiring selected elementary education students in their senior year as half-day teacher aides for the full public school year. Within this program, teaching methods courses were conducted at the site by university personnel on selected afternoons during the fall semester; assignments were contracted and judged relevant to the classes taught during the day. The program, centering predominantly around language arts and mathematics, allowed both teachers and student teachers to become active members of differentiated staffing teams. The program provided student teachers a full year of teaching exposure and the city schools with added staff to better utilize existing curriculum in meeting the needs of the individual child. The program was expanded the ensuing year. (Author)
