ON-SITE: Oklahoma Nucleus for School Involvement in Teacher Education.
Roos, Marie C.; And Others
ON-SITE (Oklahoma Nucleus for School Involvement in Teacher Education), an innovative teacher education program, is a cooperative effort between the College of Education at Oklahoma State University (OSU) and the Stillwater Public Schools (SPS). The program was initiated in 1973 and is maintained as a free partnership whose program development is based on the accommodation of the needs and goals of both OSU and SPS. ON-SITE provides early and intensive involvement in elementary education through a three-semester program for university students with junior standing. Participants have the opportunity to work with four different cooperating teachers at different grade levels (K-8) and in different schools in Stillwater. The program provides for a variety of learning experiences related to classroom instruction and management--a designated amount of time is provided for both methods classes and classroom participation. Completion of the program qualifies graduates for the Standard Elementary Certificate (K-8). Students spend six hours per week in elementary classes for two semesters, prior to student teaching, and are expected to work in small groups and with individual pupils under the supervision of both the cooperating teacher and the university supervisor. At the conclusion of the program, participants will have completed 180 clock hours of classroom observation/participation and nine credit hours (12 weeks) of student teaching. Appendixes contain: (1) schedules; (2) evaluation forms; (3) certificates of accomplishment; (4) teacher certification at OSU; (5) application for admission to student teaching; (6) suggested activities; and (7) a description of ON-SITE.
