CUETEP: Central University's Elementary Teacher Education Program.
North Carolina Central Univ., Durham.
The goal of North Carolina Central University's "new" program is to design a sequence of experiences that will prepare teachers who demonstrate their competence in terms of agreed-upon behaviors. The first component is divided into nine module clusters. The modules in the component relate to the job of the teacher, innovations which are precipitating changing roles for teachers, the teacher as a member of a profession with the responsibilities which a member of a profession has to his constituents and to his profession, the opportunities for supportive roles in education, research on teacher effectiveness and its measurement, and observation experiences. The second course includes three minicourses. One minicourse focuses on the historical and philosophical foundations, a second one is concerned with the sociological foundations, and the third centers on the modern elementary school. The senior semester teaching block contains simulated microteaching of specific strategies in the basic instruction areas (reading, mathematics, and social studies); media workshops to prepare teaching tools and visual aids; and role playing to solve social problems.
