TEPY - Teacher Education Professional Year.
Wright State Univ., Dayton, OH. Coll. of Education.
TEPY is a unified approach to the preparation of elementary school teachers which integrates the professional education areas of language arts and reading, mathematics, science, social studies, child development, evaluation, and teaching skills into an instructional format that is team-taught, clinically-oriented, and field-based. The program includes all the professional education courses needed for elementary certification in Ohio and can be completed in one year. Modules of instruction are interdisciplinary as well as discipline-oriented, and are designed for either large or small groups or individual learning experiences. Instructional sessions are held on campus three days a week with the other two days spent in full-day classroom participation. Work in the field in the College of Education Teacher Education Laboratory Centers, supervised by a full-time faculty coordinator, offers students variety in social settings, classroom organization, learning materials, and levels of ability and interest. Emphasis in the program is on performance criteria which can promote a more realistic assessment of the TEPY student's preparation in classroom effectiveness. (Author/LBH)
