Teacher Corps: A New Dimension in Education. Selected Readings.
Kennedy, V.J., Ed.; Roush, Robert E., Ed.
This collection of 46 journal articles, compiled to provide readers with a description of all facets of the National Teacher Corps program, is intended to represent the diverse points of view of many recognized leaders in the fields of compensatory, public school, and higher education. The book is designed especially for Teacher Corps interns and team leaders and for public school administrators interested in establishing a Teacher Corps program in their schools. The editors provide brief introductions to each section. Articles in part 1 deal with the authorization, administrative structure, and objectives of the program, which was designed to recruit and train teachers who would work in areas having large concentrations of low-income families or minority groups. Part 2 on the Corp's contribution to change in the structure and content of teacher education programs includes descriptions of some of the innovations introduced into programs to train corpsmen. Articles in part 3 deal with the Corps' impact on classroom instruction procedures; included are representative local program descriptions and discussion of specific innovations designed to provide instruction that is more relevant, more individualized, and more effective with disadvantaged children. Part 4 contains articles on patterns and perspectives for the future. Articles in the appendix provide a sample of editorial comment about the Teacher Corps from trade journals and commercial magazines. (JS)
