The Interpretation and Application of a Program of Teacher Education Utilizing Models.
Peck, Lucy; And Others
The New College Experimental Teacher Education Program at Hofstra University was developed to provide a field-centered experience for undergraduates interested in pursuing careers in elementary education. The Teacher Innovator Program at Columbia University's Teachers College provided the major theoretical ideas and concrete materials for the program. The direction and structure of the program derived from a belief that a teacher education program should provide experiences whereby trainees a) acquire knowledge of the major content areas that comprise the elementary school curriculum, b) acquire knowledge of curriculum planning and development, d) develop skill in interacting sensitively and flexibly with learners and with peers, e) develop skill in organizing the social structure of the classroom, f) develop skill in analyzing the verbal behavior of teachers and learners, and g) develop greater insights into their own emotional and profession professional growth and development. The four components which comprise the program are Models of Teaching, Curriculum Content, Human Relations, and Study of Teaching. (Author/HMD)
