A Plan for a New Type of Professional Training for a New Type of Teaching Staff.
Ryan, Kevin A.
Instruction in specific teaching skills should supplement teacher education curriculums. A teacher should gradually acquire basic skills through structured classroom observation and prestudent-teaching activities (tutoring, microteaching) prior to immersion in the complex milieu of the classroom. His performance of such skills would become one of the criteria for his advancement in preservice education and later for his position on a differentiated staff (which would require, in turn, inservice education for skill sharpening and specialization).
