Preparing Secondary Preservice Teachers for Second to None Schools. Part 1--Program Development and Part 2--Implementation.
Baldwin, Mark D.; Keating, Joseph F.
California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) College of Education implemented a Single Subject Credential Program (Secondary Program) in the Fall of 1995. The first part of this paper reviews the program's two-year developmental process, which includes the program's history, vision, and planning. The following areas were determined to be central to the secondary credential: (1) philosophy, goals, and objectives; (2) preservice qualifications and admissions; (3) curriculum and instruction; (4) field experience; and (5) evaluation of the preservice candidate. The second half of the paper describes the implementation of these components during the program's pilot year. Themes identified for implementation purposes are discussed. These are: refining personal philosophies of teaching, understanding teaching as a profession, utilizing the professional knowledge available, developing and sustaining collaborative relationships, becoming reflective practitioners, and maintaining a student focus in all work.
