TEACHERS OF THE POOR.
HANNAH, ARLENE; RIESSMAN, FRANK
THE PROBLEMS REGARDING THE TEACHING OF LOW-INCOME CHILDREN WERE PRESENTED. FORMERLY, WHITE, PROTESTANT, MIDDLE-CLASS NORMS WERE FORCED UPON THESE CHILDREN, AND THE TEACHER WHO ATTEMPTED TO TEACH THEM CAME ILL-PREPARED FOR THE TASK. SUCH INNOVATIONS AS CRASH REMEDIAL COURSES, PRESCHOOL PROGRAMS, AND INCREASED GUIDANCE SERVICES WERE EFFECTIVE, BUT THE ANSWER LAY IN THE EDUCATION OF YOUNG TEACHERS. THE BEGINNING OF SUCH EDUCATION SHOULD TAKE PLACE IN THE TEACHER-TRAINING INSTITUTIONS. A NEW SYSTEM OF TEACHING GEARED TO LOW-INCOME CHILDREN SHOULD BE DEVELOPED THAT WOULD INCLUDE MORE SOCIOLOGY AND ANTHROPOLOGY. STUDENT TEACHERS SHOULD BE PROVIDED WITH COMMUNITY FIELD TRIPS, HOME VISITS, AND STUDENT TEACHING IN A VARIETY OF SITUATIONS. THEY SHOULD BECOME WELL ACQUAINTED WITH THE ATTITUDES OF LOW-INCOME PUPILS. THE TEACHER'S EDUCATION SHOULD ALSO INCLUDE A DEVELOPMENT STYLE WHICH WOULD HELP HER HAVE MORE EFFECTIVE RAPPORT WITH THE CLASS. SHE SHOULD DEVELOP A STYLE THROUGH THE USE OF ROLE-PLAYING AND SHOULD PRACTICE BEFORE SHE ACTUALLY ENTERED A CLASSROOM TO TEACH.
