Lessons from the Teacher Corps.
Edelfelt, Roy A.; And Others
This booklet is a nontechnical summary of an extensive sociological investigation of the Teacher Corps, which was restricted to 10 universities and 42 schools. Data drawn from observation, questionnaires, and interviews with teachers, professors, and interns are used to present a composite picture of the program. The document includes a history of the Teacher Corps program, gives reasons for the evaluation study, and indicates methodology used. Two different kinds of information are woven together throughout the report: (a) generalized findings from the 10 Teacher Corps sites studied and (b) illustrative material drawn from two different sites--an urban university and a southern university. The summary of findings reports some intern dissatisfaction and friction with teachers. Specific characteristics of interns and teachers in the program and school changes are among the areas covered in the summary of findings. Conclusions drawn from the study are reported at the end of the booklet. (JA)
