The Integrated Professional Program: A Field-Based Elementary and Special Education Teacher Preparation Program.
Miller-Jacobs, Sandra; Moreland, Hattie
A description is given of a field-based preservice teacher education program which integrates elementary and special education, infusing theories of effective teaching with practical classroom application for working with pupils who have special needs as they are mainstreamed into the regular classroom. The program consists of three phases: orientation, classroom application, and student teaching. The 3-week orientation consists of theoretical classes. The classroom application phase enables students to work half days in a regular classroom, with individual and small groups of children experiencing learning difficulties, while continuing to attend classes. The students receive nine credits for these two phases, which consist of the integration of courses in reading/language arts/ identification of learning problems, methods and curriculum in science, social studies, and mathematics, and behavior management. Six credits are given for the third phase, a 6-week student teaching experience. (Author/JD)
