BASIC EDUCATION TEACHERS--SEVEN NEEDED QUALITIES.
PEARCE, FRANK C.
A STUDY WAS MADE BY MODESTO JUNIOR COLLEGE, MODESTO, CALIFORNIA, AT THE NEW HOPE ADULT RETRAINING CENTER, PART OF THE MODESTO MULTIOCCUPATIONAL PROJECT UNDER THE MANPOWER DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING ACT, IN WHICH TRAINEES, TEACHERS, AND ADMINISTRATORS IDENTIFIED CHARACTERISTICS OF AN EFFECTIVE ADULT BASIC EDUCATION TEACHER. STUDENT OPINIONS WERE OBTAINED THROUGH GROUP DISCUSSION, BRAINSTORMING, AND QUESTIONNAIRES. DEPTH INTERVIEWS WERE CONDUCTED WITH THE TEACHERS USING A CASE HISTORY APPROACH. TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS DESCRIBED A HYPOTHETICAL TEACHER. THE STUDY SHOWED THAT MAINTAINING RESPECT FOR THE STUDENT IS OF PRIMARY IMPORTANCE. THE TEACHER MUST HAVE UNDERSTANDING, FLEXIBILITY, PATIENCE, HUMOR, PRACTICALITY, CREATIVITY, AND PREPARATION. AN INTERVIEW SCHEDULE DESIGNED FOR SCREENING POTENTIAL TEACHERS, CALLED FOR BACKGROUND INFORMATION AND ATTITUDE MEASUREMENT OF APPLICANT REACTION TO SET SITUATIONS AND POSITION STATEMENTS. EIGHT REFERENCES WERE INCLUDED. (JA)
