A Collaborative Model to Identify and Implement Applications of Research on Effective Teaching to Preservice/Inservice Teacher Education.
Ponzio, Richard
Mills College (California) was one of three sites selected to participate in a project designed to apply and use research in elementary teacher education. The project trained student teachers and cooperating teachers to measure academic learning time and active teacher behaviors with instruments developed by recent research on teacher effectiveness. This report of the study begins with a section describing the teacher preparation program of Mills College, which is conducted in cooperation with the Vallejo City Unified School District (VCUSD). The resources and faculty of the school are discussed as well as certification requirements and the sequence of preservice course work and clinical experiences. In the second section, data are provided on the VCUSD, its demographic profile, and its overall educational philosophy and staff development activities. The third section summarizes the results of a situational analysis of the Mills College Program which was conducted prior to designing the research component of the study. The fourth section provides a description of the research design for the study, and implementation of the study to date. (JD)
