PROJECT MERGE 1975.
Bowling Green State Univ., OH. Coll. of Education.; Toledo Public Schools, OH.
PROJECT MERGE is a teacher education concept from which educational processes based on changing educational developments evolve. MERGE is a systematic, field-based, cooperative approach to teacher education, instruction, and curriculum development. It has been validated and is competency based. It represents an interrelational tri-phase structure composed of the following: (a) an inservice program which affects the renewal and enhancement of the contract teacher's competencies consistent with the demands for flexibility of functioning in a constantly changing educational age; (b) a preservice element dedicated to producing a beginning baccalaureate teacher capable of functioning across traditional categorical lines and of adjusting to evolving change; and (c) a graduate aspect relating to the production of a cadre of young persons who can assume a leadership role in the upgrading of teacher education programs. The project represents a merging of the physical, personnel, and fiscal resources of the Toledo Public Schools and Bowling Green State University to improve the quality of education.
