THE COMPETENT TEACHER OF THE DISADVANTAGED.
ROZZELL, FORREST
THE EFFECTIVE TEACHER OF THE DISADVANTAGED MUST POSSESS, FIRST OF ALL, THE QUALITIES DISTINGUISHING A GOOD TEACHER IN ANY SCHOOL IN OUR SOCIETY, AND AT THE SAME TIME, HE MUST BE COGNIZANT OF THOSE DIFFERING VALUES WHICH SEPARATE THE DISADVANTAGED SUB-CULTURE FROM THE MAINSTREAM OF OUR SOCIAL STRUCTURE. AN EFFECTIVE TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAM CAN DEVELOP IN EACH TEACHER A KNOWLEDGE OF SPECIFIC MEANS OF HELPING THE DISADVANTAGEGEGE, A COMPREHENSIVE UNDERSTANDING OF THEIR EDUCATIONAL NEEDS, AND A SENSE OF RESPECT FOR THE DISADVANTAGED CHILD. A WELL-ORGANIZED INSERVICE PROGRAM SHOULD BE ESTABLISHED TO GIVE A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING OF THE VALUES, MOTIVATIONAL FACTORS, AND ACHIEVEMENT DESIRES OF MEMBERS OF THE DISADVANTAGED SUB-CULTURE. FUNDS ARE AVAILABLE TO PROVIDE MATERIAL RESOURCES, BUT IT WILL REMAIN THE TASK OF THE TEACHERS CONCERNED, THROUGH IN-SERVICE TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAMS, TO PROVIDE EFFECTIVE PLANNING, PROPER TIMING, AND A COOPERATIVE APPROACH IN MEETING THE EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENTS OF THESE CHILDREN. THIS SPEECH WAS DELIVERED TO THE ARKANSAS EDUCATION ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE ON THE DISADVANTAGED (LITTLE ROCK, FEBRUARY 22, 1966). (DA)
