The Cooperative Teacher Education Project: Preservice Outcomes.
Gould, Orrin
Described are the manner and degree to which responsibility for design and implementation of preservice education programs are shared by public school and university staff, and for the latitude extended to preservice candidates for defining and developing their personal strengths, values, and teaching styles. Increased emphasis is placed on decision making by the candidates. The program began in 1971 as an informal teacher education program between the University of Illinois (Urbana campus) and High School District 214 (includes 8 high schools and nearly 20,000 students). It has since expanded to include other Illinois universities and several elementary school districts that "feed" to High School District 214. The Cooperative Teacher Education Project (CTEP) concept includes inservice education as well. Several methods for data collection have been employed, as well as methods for analysis of these data. The analysis of follow-up data, spring 1973, reveals strikingly different patterns of job taking by CTEP and traditionally trained teachers. Many more CTEP graduates took teaching positions following graduation, generally in highly competitive schools. (Author/EB)
