Summary

The Elementary Education Program at Capitol Campus provides a 2-year upper division curriculum designed to prepare teachers for inner-city classrooms. Students in the program are expected to develop approaches to teaching which are flexible, individualized, reality-oriented, and child-centered. The major emphasis is on the junior-year block-sequence of courses entitled Basic Preparation for Teaching--a team-taught, individualized, interdisciplinary sequence which includes 45 half-days of field experience. Placements are made in three city schools at various grade levels, where the focus progresses from an initial emphasis upon a one-to-one tutoring role to a small-group teaching experience, to a field experience teaching the full classroom group. All the other required courses are focused upon the field experience and are scheduled in the junior year with the exception of the student-teaching course. During his senior year the student works on coursework in various disciplines, develops a specialization in one or more elementary school subject areas, and completes additional student-teaching work. Program development is a continuous process involving students and faculty. There are plans to improve the procedures for student selection, to improve the balance between on-campus and field functions, and to establish a senior year salaried internship. (Author/MBM)
