REPORTS ON "TEACH," TEACHER EDUCATION FOR ADVANCING THE CULTURALLY HANDICAPPED. PROJECT REPORT--IMPLICATIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS.
HANNA, LYLE; AND OTHERS
A DETAILED SUMMARY OF PROJECT "TEACH" (TO IMPROVE PREPARATION OF TEACHERS FOR INNER-CITY SCHOOLS) PRESENTS THE FOLLOWING FINDINGS--(1) SPECIAL TRAINING AND FIELD EXPERIENCE SHOULD BEGIN IN THE FRESHMAN YEAR AND CONTINUE ON THROUGH GRADUATE WORK. (2) THE ENTIRE PROGRAM SHOULD RELATE TO THE "LABORATORY" OF THE URBAN COMMUNITY. (3) THE RECOMMENDED INTERDISCIPLINARY APPROACH WOULD (A) ENCOURAGE FUTURE TEACHERS TO DEVELOP AN INQUIRING INSTEAD OF A RECEPTIVE MIND, (B) INCLUDE THE TEACHINGS OF SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY, (C) BRING THE LATEST TEACHING TECHNIQUES INTO THE COLLEGE CLASSROOM (NO MORE "TEACHER TELL, STUDENT DO"), (D) BECOME AN INTEGRATIVE EXPERIENCE BASED ON OBSERVATION AND PARTICIPATION IN PRACTICAL SITUATIONS, (E) OBSERVE AND ANALYZE BEHAVIORAL PROBLEMS THROUGH USE OF PEER CONTROLS, GROUP BEHAVIOR, VIDEO TAPE, OTHER AUDIO-VISUAL DEVICES, ETC. THE IMPORTANT ROLE OF THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN TEACHER PREPARATION IS STRESSED. THE COLLEGES HAVE TOO LONG EMPHASIZED PREPARATION OF TEACHERS FOR CONVENTIONAL MIDDLE-CLASS SCHOOLS. IF INNOVATIVE TEACHERS ARE WANTED, THE SCHOOLS SHOULD NOT FORCE THEM TO "PLAY THE TENURE GAME." (AF)
