PROTEACH: An Extended Preservice Teacher Preparation Program.
Smith, David C.
PROTEACH is a newly redesigned five-year preservice teacher preparation program at the University of Florida. During progress through the program, the bachelor's degree is obtained, and the program culminates on completion of the master's degree. Program features include emphasis on research and study in fields supplementary to education-related study. Reasons for changing to a five-year program include changes in the teaching profession and in teacher preparation, new demands placed on teachers, the need to prepare for increasingly complex teaching fields, changes in public perception of teachers' degrees, the need to work on and master effective classroom practices, and the need for more comprehensive and demanding requirements. This document discusses these trends and describes the PROTEACH programs for elementary school, secondary school, and special education teachers. (CB)
