Clinical Approach to Teacher Education.
Boise State Univ., ID.
The Clinical Approach to Teacher Education at Boise State Colleges places its students into two concurrent classes which run for two consecutive semesters and which emphasize the integration of theory and practice. Its ultimate goal is the development of a culminating year-long internship for the study of child behavior, curriculum, and methodology within a clinical setting of the school and the college. Four professors comprise the elementary education team responsible for this program. They have dual assignments: as professors who teach and model effective strategies and as clinical professors in a given elementary school who supervise the prospective teachers. Each sequence of study is revised and finalized by the entire team. Prospective teachers generally spend one-half day in a clinical student teaching assignment followed by an afternoon class on campus at Boise State. At any given time the student teachers' clinical schedule may be altered to give them all-day teaching experiences in their respective classrooms or intensive, in-service workshops. Placement for the two semesters' student teaching is done by cooperative efforts of the building principal and the clinical professor. The clinical professor spends a minimum of three mornings a week in his building. (A social science course outline is appended.) (Author/JA)
