POTENTIAL DEVELOPMENTS IN TEACHER EDUCATION. WORKING PAPER.
MCGUIRE, CARSON
THREE AREAS WERE IDENTIFIED IN WHICH EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAMS COULD BE DEVELOPED BY THE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION OF THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS. WITHIN THE AREA OF "BEHAVIORAL SCIENCE FOUNDATIONS OF EDUCATION," THE AUTHOR SUGGESTED BUILDING A SEQUENCE OF UP TO 18 HOURS OF STUDY OF THE BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES (PSYCHOLOGY, ANTHROPOLOGY, SOCIOLOGY, AND LINGUISTICS), PLUS LOGIC AND SOME PRINCIPLES OF PHILOSOPHY. EXAMPLES WERE GIVEN OF THE KINDS OF COURSES TO BE DEVELOPED THROUGH COOPERATION WITH OTHER EXISTING DEPARTMENTS IN OTHER COLLEGES OF THE UNIVERSITY AND OF THE ADVANTAGES OF SUCH COURSES TO TEACHERS. FEDERAL AND STATE LEGISLATION THAT WOULD PROVIDE FOR CHILDREN 3-5 YEARS OF AGE TO ENTER PUBLIC SCHOOLS WAS EXPECTED TO CREATE A NEED FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF COURSES IN "EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION." AS A STARTING POINT FOR SUCH TEACHER-TRAINING COURSES, THE AUTHOR SUGGESTED THE INITIATION OF COOPERATIVE ACTIVITIES WITH AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL KINDERGARTEN AND THE UNIVERSITY'S DEPARTMENT OF HOME ECONOMICS. DEVELOPMENT OF A TRANSFORMATION OF THE EDUCATIONAL ENCOUNTERS IN "PRE- AND EARLY-ADOLESCENT EDUCATION" WAS SUGGESTED AS A WAY OF AWAKENING KNOWLEDGE-SEEKING BEHAVIOR IN BOYS AND GIRLS DURING THAT PERIOD OF THEIR LIVES. SUCH A TRANSFORMATION WAS SEEN AS OFFERING OPPORTUNITIES IN CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT AND FOR EXPERIMENTS IN TEACHER EDUCATION. (AL)
