The Preparation of Mathematics Teacher Educators.
Travers, Kenneth J., Ed.
Included are papers presented at the 1969 University of Illinois Colloquium on the Preparation of Teacher Educators in Mathematics. The first paper, "On the Preparation of the Teacher of Teachers" by B. Othanel Smith, examines the prominence of research in the teacher training programs. The second, "Source and Supply of Leadership in Mathematics Education" by Howard F. Fehr, discusses the characteristics of leaders and the tasks of future leaders in mathematics education. The last, "Preparation for Effective Mathematics Teaching in the Inner City" by Irwin K. Feinstein, outlines what should be the mathematical and professional background of those teachers working with inner city children. Following each of these three papers are two response papers written by other mathematics educators. (RS)
