Hamburg Center Intern Follow-Up. Second Year, 1974.
McKee, Helen C.; And Others
This report presents results of a questionnaire given to students involved in the competency-based teacher education program of the Hamburg central schools and SUNY at Fredonia. The program involves (a) the teaching of methods courses on-site, and (b) providing an opportunity for interns to blend theory into practice during a full-year internship. A four-part questionnaire designed to gain insights into the reactions of interns and elicit their recommendations for change was sent to each student. The results of each section are examined separately in the report. Section 1 focuses on colleges attended, academic honors, Hamburg Teacher Education Research Center (TERC) information sources, interview schedules, employment leads, and interaction with placement center personnel. Section 2 presents intern reactions to the coordination of activities of intern relationships with cooperating teachers and college staff. Section 3 discusses intern reactions to TERC-related experiences. Section 4 summarizes participant comments. A chapter on intern employment opportunities, and appendixes concerning intern information, colleges attended, and employment status are included. (Author/JS)
