Early Experience Program.
Steubenville Coll., OH.
In an effort to bridge the gap between theory and practice, the Education Department of the College of Steubenville initiated the Early Experience Program to operate in conjunction with the required course of study for all full-time elementary education majors. The program places freshman through senior students in the classrooms of schools (parochial and public) in the surrounding area in order to give the student personal contact with methods and techniques, small-group instruction, and classroom structure. It also affords him insight into the development of a philosophy of education, and most importantly, permits direct involvement with children. Aims of the program are to help the student decide for himself whether his chosen profession is right for him and to allow the Education Department to work individually with students to strengthen their skills and provide an extensive background for their work as future teachers.
