Preservice Programs in the Secondary Schools for Beginning Teachers: Working with the High-Risk Marginal High School Students--Perils and Prospects.
Golanty-Koel, Renee
A description is given of a program developed to offer first semester student teachers the opportunity to become intensely involved with adolescents through a tutorial program on a high school campus. The object was to enable student teachers to become familiar with adolescent social and learning problems, particularly those of students from lower socioeconomic and minority backgrounds. It also was intended to provide them with some limited teaching experiences through a tutorial which would help illustrate the teaching and learning theories taught in their university classrooms. The program also sought to assist high schools by offering them help through tutorials for remediating high school students, many of whom were minority, with the subsequent result of helping to reduce the high dropout rate in the schools. Appendices include excerpts from the journals of participating student teachers, a questionnaire used in evaluating the program, and a bibliography of writings on dropout prevention. (JD)
