WHAT'S NEW IN TEACHER EDUCATION.
BIRKMAIER, EMMA M.
IMPROVEMENT IN TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAMS IS BEING IMPLEMENTED TO INSURE A CORPS OF QUALIFIED LANGUAGE TEACHERS WHO CAN MEET THE DEMANDS OF MODERN CURRICULA. NATIONAL DEFENSE EDUCATION ACT INSTITUTES, FILMS, CONSULTANTS, AND TEACHERS MANUALS ACCOMPANYING NEW MATERIALS ARE AVAILABLE FOR INSERVICE TEACHERS. FUTURE TEACHERS ARE BEING AIDED BY MORE CAREFULLY DESIGNED TRAINING PROGRAMS WHICH INCLUDE COURSES IN APPLIED LINGUISTICS AND STUDY ABROAD. ALTHOUGH LITTLE HAS BEEN DONE TO UPGRADE THE TEACHING COMPETENCY OF COLLEGE INSTRUCTORS WHO TRAIN LANGUAGE TEACHERS, A FEW UNIVERSITIES HAVE INITIATED NEW REQUIREMENTS FOR MASTER AND DOCTORAL CANDIDATES. OTHER INSTITUTIONS ARE DEVELOPING SPECIAL PROGRAMS, INCLUDING SPECIFIC ONES FOR LANGUAGE TEACHERS IN THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS. THIS ARTICLE APPEARS IN "AUDIOVISUAL INSTRUCTION," VOLUME 7, NUMBER 9, NOVEMBER 1962, PAGES 634-636. (AF)
