An Experimental Teacher Preparation Program.
Cooper, Shirley Howard
A program with the major goal of achieving effective collaboration between public school personnel and university personnel in the preparation of physical education teachers is described. This program consists of two segments--a block of courses carrying semester credit hours and a student teaching supervision option. University personnel work cooperatively with public school teachers in field experience programs under a system that allows a maximum of input from the student teacher. All participants in the program attend joint seminars and workshops. Decision making by the group allows the program to be responsive to the changing needs and interests of students as they begin studying the teaching process. Students work toward their own goals as they study the teaching process and receive feedback from many sources as they develop and test their teaching beliefs and styles. Public school and university teacher roles are clearly defined with different although interdependent responsibilities in the preparation of teachers. (JD)
