Comparing an Old and New Model of Teacher Training: Some Lessons We've Learned.
Miller, H. Bernard; Scribner, Jay D.
Two Temple University post-baccalaureate programs, each designed to serve different populations are described. The Intern Teaching Program for College Graduates (ITPCG) is designed for liberal arts and science graduates who wish to become teachers. ITPCG started in 1954 with two major purposes: to draw capable arts and science graduates into teaching and to meet the then shortage of teachers. The second program, Temple University's add-on certification program in mathematics and general science, was developed at the request of the School District of Philadelphia. The add-on program seeks certified teachers who wish to add mathematics or general science to their teaching credentials and has as its purpose to move teachers from overstaffed to underserved teaching areas. Though each has a different target population and a separate mission, the older program has influenced a number of programmatic decisions of the newer one. Major similarities and some differences between the programs are described, and a brief outline is offered of meaningful lessons learned from developing the programs. These may be applicable to fifth year and internship teacher training programs. (JD)
