Integrated Preservice-Inservice Teacher Development Program at the University of New Hampshire.
New Hampshire Univ., Durham.
This integrated preservice/inservice teacher education program was planned by a multiagency cooperative group known as the Southern New Hampshire Staff Development Cooperative. This group includes teachers, school administrators, State Department of Education representatives, and college-based teacher educators. The program planning and administration emphasizes a shift in power from college-based teacher educators to parity cooperatives. For the preservice teacher the program emphasizes phased introduction into teaching with an initial clinical experience, individualized program structuring with a wide range of minicourse offerings in professional areas, a strong general education background, and a year-long internship. The inservice component emphasizes more responsible roles for teachers in supervision and preservice instruction, more attention to inservice education by college-based teacher educators, and a formal role in decisions about teacher preparation. Major program components include the following: (a) a one-semester teacher aide/instructional assistant experience (normally in the sophomore year); (b) minicourse programs in educational structure and change, human growth and learning, alternative teaching models, and alternative perspecitves on the nature of education; (c) a year-long internship as part of a master's degree level program; and (d) graduate-level inservice courses offered at school centers.
