The Wisconsin Improvement Program and the Teacher Internship.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
This publication presents the guidelines used in developing and implementing the Teacher Internship phase of the Wisconsin Improvement Program. The objectives of this phase include a) provision for a realistic professional assignment for the teacher intern which involves all phases of an educational program; b) provision for an opportunity to put theory into practice by testing ideas and understandings unique to the teaching/learning situation; and c) provision for the preservice intern to be a member of an instructional team with opportunities for observation, analysis, and evaluation of teaching. Some of the characteristics of the program which enable these objectives to be met are a) cooperative planning with 17 universities and 105 public school systems, b) the full-semester teaching assignment of the intern in a participating public school, c) the involvement of interns with students in the classroom and in extracurricular activities, and d) the evaluation of the intern in relation to teaching techniques and the rate of student learning. Budgetary considerations and the responsibilities of local school systems for the program are included in the report. (BRB)
