Community Involvement in Teacher Education: A Study of the Models.
Masla, John A.; Royster, Preston M., Ed.
The author states in the opening pages of this paper that community involvement in educational programming, whether for children's learning or teacher training, is an absolute necessity for the development of alternative strategies and solutions for present and future educational problems. The paper reviews some of the ongoing attempts to maintain a broad base of community involvement in teacher education programming. There are discussions of a number of models as typified by selected programs, followed by program descriptions by representatives of the respective programs. The models under consideration are (1) Teacher Corps; (2) Urban/Rural School Development Program; (3) Follow Through Program; (4) Community School Concept (Mott Foundation); and (5) The Home School Institute (Trinity College). A community component matrix is utilized as a guide for study and consideration. The paper ends with the author's conclusions and recommendations. (JA)
