Future Teachers Institute: Design/Implementation/Recommendations.
Brosseau, Gayle D.
In 1991, the Future Teachers Institute designed a Teacher Assistant Associate in Arts degree program with a bilingual option and a career ladder providing various options for teacher assistants and instructional aides. Together with representatives from the Los Angeles Unified School District and California State University, Northridge, Los Angeles Mission College (LAMC) compiled findings from the research and operation of the program into this manual to facilitate program replication by other institutions. The first section of the manual includes a description of its format, the goal of the institute, and a delineation of the project's objectives. The next six sections comprise a "how-to" manual outlining the steps to be taken by each community college, school district, and university participating in the project. The next sections provide details regarding the outcomes of the project, including a summary evaluation, conclusions, long-range plans, and recommendations. Appendixes contain documentation of the entire project, including agendas, minutes, articulation agreements, an outline of the associate degree curriculum, a career ladder, committees involved in the project, a chart correlating curriculum needs with courses offered, explanations of courses and workshops, related documents, evaluation data, and surveys.
