The Cooperative Residency Program in Learning Disabilities.
Wisconsin State Univ., Whitewater. School of Education.
The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater's Learning Disability Residency Program is an interagency field-oriented teacher training program designed to meet the immediate and growing need for Learning Disabilities teachers in the state of Wisconsin. The specific objectives of the program include the following: (a) to provide a clinical year of selected and controlled field experiences for the Learning Disabilities resident under the guidance of a qualified Learning Disabilities teacher in a local school and under a university supervisor whose specialty is Learning Disabilities Teacher Education; (b) to develop a model for a full-year residency for teacher education; (c) to provide observations, conferences, team planning, and seminars for the resident; (d) to provide meaningful inservice opportunities for the resident, cooperating teacher, and local education agency supervisors of Learning Disabilities programs; (d) to provide maximum opportunity to operationalize classroom learning from the Learning Disabilities course work. The Wisconsin State Department of Public Instruction, the local schools, and the Wisconsin Improvement Program are cooperating with the university in financial support of the program. Evaluation of the residency program is incomplete at present but indications are encouraging. (Author/JA)
