PROTEACH: A Program for the Preparation of Professional Teachers.
Florida Univ., Gainesville. Coll. of Education.
Because of the greater demands placed on teachers today, the faculty of the College of Education at the University of Florida has developed a new teacher preparation program. It is not built upon the existing program, but upon a reconceptualization of what a beginning teacher should know, should be able to do, and should be, as a model for youth. The PROTEACH program will require five years of study. Features that distinguish PROTEACH from other programs include: (1) an increase in academic subject matter; (2) utilization, through attention to research, of the best available information about effective teachers' knowledge, skills, and personal attributes; (3) expanded foundational studies; (4) expanded clinical and laboratory experiences; (5) utilization of best available instructional procedures; (6) maintenance of integrity within the program; and (7) recruitment of high quality students. PROTEACH is an extended program, approximately 32 semester hours beyond the baccalaureate degree. PROTEACH program descriptions for elementary/early childhood teachers, secondary education teachers, and special education teachers are included. (JM)
