An Alternative Secondary Teacher Training Model: The Georgia Model.
Hassard, Jack; Jensen, Rosalie
The Teacher Recruitment and Internship Project for Success (TRIPS) is an intern-mentor alternative program designed to attract academically talented foreign language, mathematics, and science teachers in Georgia. TRIPS teachers receive summer training in pedagogy, and then are involved in a year-long internship under the direction of a mentor teacher and a college professor. Interns and mentors also participate in a week-long summer workshop. Mentors receive specialized training in communication skills and conferencing, observation and analysis of teaching, evaluation, research, and literature on supervision. The program focuses on achieving competence in the areas of: (1) human growth and development; (2) curriculum; (3) teaching methods; and (4) identification and education of children with special learning needs. The 1-year supervised internship under the guidance of the mentor teacher is supported by the local school system. This paper outlines the planning process for the program and presents a detailed description of the summer institute program. The appendix consists of an overview of the program. (JD)
