Cycle 8 Teacher Corps Project. September, 1973 to August, 1975. Final Report.
Iowa Univ., Iowa City.
This is the final report of the Cycle 8 Teacher Corps Project of the University of Iowa. The project was designed for 20 bilingual interns, all third and fourth year undergraduates. The cooperating teachers were selected upon the recommendation of local superintendents and principals. The planning period of the program was August 1973 to May 1974. The interns completed their preservice in August 1974 and immediately began the inservice period working in various communities. Each intern experienced working in both the lower and upper elementary grades. During the inservice, the interns were involved in developing proposals for cummunity projects. During the 1975 summer session, they completed all work required for the bachelor's degree and/or certification. As a result of the project, competency-based and field-based teacher training programs were seen to be viable approaches to teacher education. The project appeared to have an impact on the schools and communities served. (Appended to this report are an excerpt from "An Analysis of Extended Planning Periods for Teacher Corps Projects;" module clusters; a list of advisory committee members, interns, and cooperating teachers; orientation activities; grading procedures and an evaluation form; a letter of explanation regarding Teacher Corps grading procedures; faculty summaries of Teacher Corps modules; and program evaluation forms.)
