An Innovative Graduate Teacher Training Program in the Area of Emotionally Disturbed Pupils (The American University - District of Columbia Community Mental Health Program).
District of Columbia Mental Health Administration, Washington, DC.; American Univ., Washington, DC.
This program represents a combined effort of American University's Department of Education and the District of Columbia's Department of Human Resources and Department of Special Education. The program seeks to re-educate 40 seriously disturbed inner-city pupils, train graduate students as resource teachers in special education, and provide in-service training for 40 District of Columbia teachers. Now operating in its fifth year, the program has just recently been renewed for three more years. The training program for the graduate students is organized around 22 specific competencies that are archieved through the integration of teaching, practicum, and seminar experience. A quality control system for the program includes a weekly evaluation and planning conference for the trainees, a fixed videotaped microteaching session for the trainees, and ongoing program and trainee research evaluations. (The document contains a program description, plan of the training program, description of evaluation procedures, and a research report on the first three years of operation.) (Author/JA)
