Social Restoration Program.
Bell, Raymond
Lehigh University's Social Restoration Program prepares teachers via an experimental action-internship model to work with delinquent and predelinquent youth in a variety of settings. The program is field centered and competency based, combining theory with practice in each of the three phases of the program. Phase one, the preinternship practicum, includes a) field experiences with the police and probation departments and with social and community agencies and b) teaching in schools and detention homes. Phase two is a one-year internship which is mutually supervised by the employing agency and the university. Support personnel include reading specialists, counselors, and curriculum specialists. The terminal and integrating phase of the program is spent on campus where multi-disciplinary seminars are used to add further theoretical structure to the interns' practical base. Participants in the program have served in both schools and communities as crisis-intervention teachers and "ombudsmen"; they have also begun to staff alternate learning centers as well as model programs in correctional facilities.
