McGeoch, Dorothy M.
This paper is a descriptive history of programs for teacher educators at Teachers College, Columbia University, from 1935 to 1965. Individual sections review the doctoral program in 1935, the development of the master's programs, the beginning of a preservice program, reorganization and readjustment in 1935, the widening responsibilities of the 1940's, the doctoral program in 1950, and emphasis on group process. The years from 1950 to 1965 are briefly summarized, and the 1965 program is described in more complete detail. The role of various staff members, including Florence Stratemeyer, is noted throughout. Some phases of the program are illustrated with reports of the activities of individual students enrolled in 1935, in 1946, and in 1960. The last section identifies"characteristics which seem to continue throughout the whole period and represent a constant frame of reference within which all changes are made." Thirty-two references are cited. (JS)
