Innovative Methods Train Teachers at Indiana University.
Rouse, Robert; Rouse, Virginia
This paper describes an individualized program of teacher training at Indiana University. Student teachers are able to choose their own teaching experience from several projects. The Shawnee Project gives the novice teachers the opportunity to cope with inner-city school problems in real situations. The Urban Semester Project combines student teaching, community experiences, and residency in inner-city Indianapolis for a full semester. Here, the students are exposed to institutions and contacts who have the most profound effects on the inner-city students. The American Indian Reservation Student Teaching Project places teachers on four reservations in Arizona. The Latino focuses on children of migrant workers and students live and teach in bilingual sectors of the country. The Atterbury Job Corps Center Project focuses on programmed learning, diagnostic techniques, and small class situations for adults, most of whom have been dropouts. Most of these programs have not been evaluated, but educators are optimistic and feel that they enrich the student teaching experience. Since the student teachers spend more in the school, they are able to see the actual development of pupils in the classroom. (PD)
