Progress Toward Objectives in Teacher Education 1974-75.
This three-part document examines Project Change, an early childhood and developmental education graduate program funded by the U. S. Office of Education. Purposes of the project were to develop a Master's program for teachers of young children ages 3-10 and to work with teachers and schools in central New York to develop good educational programs. According to the introduction, Project Change approaches both teacher education and change in the schools through (a) developmental methods, (b) efforts aimed at instilling teachers with a feeling of control over their own destiny, and (c) stressing the idea that performance-based teacher education must be person-centered. Part one describes the history of the project, rationale for its development, and its evaluation. Part two examines the continuation of the project through the degree program, summer and fall institutes, self-instructional modules, field-based courses, and a teacher advisory service. Other support systems include: (a) teacher-parent resource center; (b) target schools for long-term inservice development; (c) demonstration programs for children; and (d) dissemination methods. Part three presents evidence regarding the completion of training developments. (JS)
