The Case for Extended Programs of Initial Teacher Preparation.
Denemark, George; Nutter, Norma
A recommendation is made for a six-year program of initial teacher preparation--five years of campus-based, but field-oriented, preparation followed by a sixth year of supervised internship with provision for follow-up of beginning teachers in their first year of regular employment. The following aspects of this topic are discussed: (1) needs and present program inadequacies; (2) the knowledge base supporting extended programs; (3) curricular components of initial teacher preparation programs; and (4) issues relating to extending initial teacher preparation.
