THE CHARACTERISTICS OF TEACHER EDUCATION STUDENTS IN THE BRITISH ISLES AND THE UNITED STATES.
DICKSON, GEORGE E.; AND OTHERS
A COMPARISON OF PRESERVICE TEACHER EDUCATION STUDENTS WAS PERFORMED IN THE AREAS OF (1) TEACHER ATTITUDES AND PERSONALITY CHARACTERISTICS, (2) GENERAL EDUCATIONAL PREPARATION, (3) PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION KNOWLEDGE, AND (4) GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. ALMOST 5,000 ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION STUDENTS IN THE UNITED KINGDOM AND THE UNITED STATES RECEIVED A 12-HOUR BATTERY OF STANDARDIZED TESTS. THE RESULTS ON THE TEACHER CHARACTERISTICS AND ATTITUDES MEASURED INDICATED THAT STUDENTS IN THE UNITED STATES WERE MORE LEARNING-CENTERED OR TRADITIONAL AND LESS CHILD-CENTERED OR PERMISSIVE IN THEIR APPROACH TO TEACHING THAN WERE THEIR BRITISH COUNTERPARTS. AMERICAN STUDENTS APPEARED TO HAVE BETTER PREPARATION IN MEASURED AREAS OF PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION. OTHER RESULTS SHOWED A LARGE NUMBER OF SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES AND SOME DEFINITE PATTERNS. (JM)
