This proposal deals with the implementation of a field oriented, performance based elementary teacher preparation program. The first section of the proposal defines intern roles, intern responsibilities, and performance goals. Section two lists expected competencies and presents the rationale for these competencies. Section three discusses the major characteristics of this teacher preparation program. The fourth section outlines procedures which (a) ensure that each intern participates in the design of his/her own program, and (b) enable the intern to achieve certification at his/her own rate. Section five discusses the selection and placement of interns, and includes entrance applications and exit evaluations. The sixth section provides feedback procedures for the interns and the program. Included are (a) evaluation forms; (b) selection criteria for field associates and field coordinators; and (c) an outline of the responsibilities of field associates, field coordinators, principals, clinic professors, and clinic directors. Also included in this section is a code of ethics for the teaching profession. Section seven presents examples of the kind of experiences that will be available to staff development personnel to assist them to develop necessary competencies and carry out the responsibilities of their roles. Program elements which ensure the quality of the intern's preparation are discussed in section eight. Section nine mentions the planning that is taking place for a new program of continuing career development. (MK)
