A Research-Based Internship for Emergency Credentialed Teachers. Final Report.
Kay, Patricia M.; Sabatini, Anne
This teaching internship program was developed by Baruch College in response to an overabundance of new, uncertified teachers working as temporary per diem teachers in full-time classroom teaching positions in New York City. The 1-year program integrates graduate study of effective teaching with an in-school intern-mentor support system for elementary school teachers. The program combines teacher education, a province of the college, with teacher induction, a province of the schools. This report is in three parts. The "Project Portrayal" provides a brief overview of the entire 3-year project. The "Program Assessment Report" presents specific information about the effects of the program, for interns and mentors as well as for the college and schools. The "Project Profile" provides, in outline form, the essential components for replicating the program. A manual appended to the "Project Portrayal" section contains in detail the specifics of the course content and how it was delivered. It contains many ideas for blending mentor training and support with internship courses and for combining research-based knowledge about effective teaching with the needs of beginning teachers. It documents one solution to the problem of appropriate balance between clinical and academic activities for a teacher education/induction program carrying graduate credit. (JD)
