Wood, Frances B.
Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v7 n3 p1-4 Mar 2010
In 1990 the Teacher Development Program was created by the Office of Professional Field Experiences at Southeastern Louisiana University to better the quality and improve the success rate of teacher candidates and student teachers. The fundamental principle behind the program was to provide assistance for pre-service teachers who need immediate intervention to prevent poor performance or possible failure. This article describes the goals of the program and the services offered almost 20 years after its inception.
