Teacher Corps/Peace Corps Competency Based Elementary Physical Education Project.
Enberg, Mary Lou
The Teacher Corps/Peace Corps project in elementary school physical education at Washington State University provided a graduate program which was competency based, field based, and partially individualized. The program attempted to fulfill the organizational goals of the two sponsoring federal agencies (Teacher Corps and Peace Corps). Teacher interns, who had previously earned baccalaureate degrees, completed a 12-month program of three phases: preservice, which stressed preparation for teaching, subject matter, and community needs; in-service, which included teaching in the school districts and graduate course work in teaching, curriculum, learning, development, and methods of research; and postservice, which included thesis proposal approval, additional course work in admininstration and supervision, and training in how to conduct in-service programs for classroom teachers. Twenty-four of 25 interns completed the program in 1973 and were recommended to the Superintendent of Public Instruction as qualified provisional (initial) teachers of elementary school physical education.
