Curriculum Guidelines for Inner-City Teacher Education.
Clothier, Grant, Ed.
The curriculum outlined here was developed within the Cooperative Urban Teacher Education Program (See ED027265 and ED032255) where the content has been used with preservice elementary and secondary teachers for two years. Content for teacher education, sociology, and mental health are presented in separate sections of the monograph, but the introduction, which sketches rationale and historical development of the guidelines, includes a suggested calendar of events (for a semester block which includes student teaching) to illustrate how course content is interrelated. The total curriculum is organized into a three-phase framework: (1) teaching assignment, school organization, and facilities; (2) subject matter adequacy and class control; (3) individual problem students. The three sections on teacher education, sociology, and mental health each contain lists of major concepts, pertinent activities, and resources under several major topics for each phase of the curriculum. Examples of major topics within each section are (1) teacher education: the function of the teacher, the analytical study of teaching, teaching strategies for stimulating pupil responsibility and for individualizing instruction; (2) sociology: social organization of the school, the culture of the inner city, social deviance in the inner-city child; (3) mental health: increasing self-awareness, increasing understanding of pupils. Several pages of illustrative material are also included for each section. (JS)
