Hamburg Center Intern Follow-Up.
McKee, Helen C.; And Others
This study presents an evaluation by student teachers of a one-year internship program initiated in 1972 in the Hamburg central school system. The Teacher Education Research Center (TERC) program was field-centered and competency-based, and provided the opportunity to develop teaching competencies in 12 categories. The evaluation instrument was designed to determine the effects of the program on the attitudes, academic backgrounds, employment prospects, and professional growth of interns. The four-part questionnaire covered the following topics: (a) college-related information, (b) TERC-related information, (c) employment information, and (d) personal comments. Each section is individually presented and the results examined. Section 1 lists colleges attended by the interns, areas of study, and reasons for choosing the TERC program. Section 2 focuses on TERC activities and how they were rated by the interns on a three-point scale. Section 3 discusses student use of the placement office and job opportunities. Section 4 presents comments by the interns on the program, teaching methods, and faculty. (Appendixes include a listing of colleges attended by interns, teaching assignments, and a sample questionnaire.) (Author/JS)
