Eastern Washington Special Education Consortium Training and Certification Program for Special Education Teachers at the Elementary Level.
Hunsaker, Don; And Others
Presented is a competency based teacher education (CBTE) program for training and certification of elementary level special education teachers which represents the program development phase of the Eastern Washington Special Education Consortium. It is explained that a student must be interviewed by a three-man review committee to reach each level of certification: preparatory level--the level a trainee reaches before being allowed to student teach; initial level (normally reached on the completion of B.A. degree requirements)--allows trainee to teach the handicapped; and continuing level (equivalent to the fifth year or a graduate program)--qualifies the trainee to act as an advisor within the training program. Following an introduction in Chapter 1 on the program's historical development, advantages of a special education CBTE program, a brief program description, and consortium by-laws, are six chapters covering program management; preparation program; and the implementation process in table form for elementary special education teachers at the preparatory, initial, and continuing levels. Included in the appendixes are program planning sheets for each of the three levels of certification, the estimated budget for first year operations, and a copy of "Guidelines and Standards for the Development and Approval of Programs of Preparation Leading to the Certification of School Professional Personnel".
