Summary

The Future Teacher Institute (FTI) is a minority teacher recruitment model, initiated and field-tested at California State University Dominguez Hills (CSUDH) over a 5-year period. The FTI's goal is twofold: (1) to involve promising minority high school students in a direct teaching/learning experience; and (2) to familiarize fourth- through sixth-grade minority students and their parents with a college environment so that higher education might be viewed as possible and desirable. During a 10-week cycle of Saturday meetings, teams of 5 high school students learn and practice techniques of group planning and teaching, and they present enriched learning activities to groups of 10 to 15 local elementary students. In pre- and post-institute questionnaires, the number of participants interested in teaching careers rose from 41 to 68 percent. Participants will be followed for 5 years to determine the program's impact on career choice. Appendices provide elementary and high school student recruitment procedures, resources and computer software lists, an outline for a first week orientation, an example of a team notebook, a parent program design, culminating activities, parent evaluation form, space needs, and a program evaluation form.
