A Proposed Fordham Fact--Host School Intravisitation Program Based on a Report and Suggestions.
Sweeney, Kenneth
This document is an internal proposal for the Intravisitation Program, to be added to the Fordham Advocacy Community Organizer Teacher Training Program. The underlying rationale for the program is that observation of creative and well-planned lessons would be of invaluable service to trainees. The intravisitation schedule would evolve after informal discussion among team leaders, cooperating teachers, and other participants in the program. From this group, a planning committee for each host school should be selected and given responsibility for determination of curriculum sequence and schedules. The plan then calls for the determination of lesson procedures. Lessons taught by teacher interns are to be prepared and subsequently discussed with team leaders, cooperating teachers, and principals. Copies of plans should then be distributed to participant observers. Every lesson should be discussed at the end of each demonstration by all observers, with the lesson teacher serving as discussion leader. After informal conferences with the teacher intern, the team leader should prepare a review of the lesson. This review, together with the lesson plan, can be used to assess intern competency in cognitive understanding and teaching behavior. The lesson plans should be compiled in a booklet to be used by per diem teachers, by new teachers, and as a means of modifying instructional activities at the university level. (HMD)
