An Innovative Program for Training College Teachers.
Linville, Malcolm E., Jr.; Rees, Gilbert
An education program designed to provide experiences for graduate students that would prepare them to teach at the college level is described. The practicum courses offered were developed to bring theoretical and practical aspects of undergraduate teacher education into a clear and interacting relationship and to help students in applying what they had learned theoretically to actual and simulated educational situations. Students were assigned to teaching teams responsible for two undergraduate college courses and had direct and regular contact with small groups of students for two semesters. Opportunities were provided for observing teaching in public school classrooms, leading group discussions with their peers, and giving short lectures. The students had close contacts with experienced faculty members who evaluated their work and served as role models. (JD)
