1980 Graduates of the Block Project. A Follow-Up Study.
Buffie, Edward G.
Students at Indiana University preparing to become elementary teachers were offered the option of participating in a Block Program as an alternative to the customary Early Childhood Program. Block is a professional semester for students at the end of their junior or beginning of their senior year. The characteristics of this program are: (1) team approach to instruction; (2) flexibility; (3) carefully articulated work with respect to preparation in language arts, mathematics, reading, science, and social studies; (4) carefully articulated collegiate and field experiences in the schools; and (5) extensive evaluation of each phase of the program including followup studies. This followup study of 1980 graduates sought information on their employment status. Results of the questionnaire sent to graduates revealed that ninety percent of those seeking jobs found full-time teaching positions or related positions. (JD)
