The Saanich Teacher Training Program. A Management Analysis Paper Prepared for the International Learning Cooperative.
Harker, W. John
This study proved an alternate secondary teacher education program at the University of Victoria to be a success. The most distinguishing characteristic of the program is that selected student teachers spend the entire school year situated in one of two secondary schools in the Saanich, British Columbia, school system. During this time students remain registered at the University of Victoria and receive a salary as well from the Saanich School District. During the course of the year, student teachers (working under the guidance and supervision of sponsor teachers and university supervisors) assume full responsibility for one class and serve as a teaching assistant in another class. Teaching schedules are rearranged at the end of the first semester. Student teachers are encouraged to become heavily involved in assisting with extracurricular activities and other school activities. A questionnaire mailed to all participating teachers and students in June 1978 is appended. (MM)
