Survival--Skills--Strategy; Teacher Education for the 70's.
Leland, Allen O.; Harder, Hilda L.
This document is a description of the California Lutheran Intern Program (CLIP). The CLIP model includes a summer of preservice preparation at the college, a school year of contractual inservice training in elementary classrooms under the supervision of the school districts' resource teachers for interns and the college education department consultants, and a summer of postservice education at the college. It is stated that the model was built on the theoretical framework that assumes that the neophyte teacher on his way to becoming a master teacher passes through three stages of development: survival stage (the teacher creates an atmosphere conducive to learning and establishes himself as a leader in the classroom); skills stage (the teacher demonstrates skill in the presentation of the subject matter and motivates the students towards acceptable achievement and behavior); and strategy stage (the teacher individualizes instruction through a variety of instructional practices planned and programmed to develop the learning potential of each pupil. Observation Check Lists used by the college consultants to further describe teacher behavior and the classroom setting at each of these stages are included in the text. The document describes the screening of candidates for the program, the role of the intern teacher, the preservice education component, the inservice component, evaluation techniques, and the role of the CLIP consultant.
