Sociology and the Training of Teachers of the Disadvantaged: A Final Report - Part II.
Adams, Raymond S.; And Others
The potential relevance of sociology in the development of a teacher training program is examined. Investigation of the sociology area is effected through: (1) the deliberations of a Sociology consortium; (2) a condensed version of material abstracted in a literature search; (3) a conceptual mapping of the field accompanied by a brief listing of relevant facts; and (4) a summation that outlines the broad basis on which the teacher training program will be based. The first step in developing a program is to establish a rational basis for program planning, which should be followed by the drawing up of behavioral objectives. These would specify what experiences the trainees had to have, and what behavioral outcomes would be required. What the sociological perspective points up is the essential and essentially systemic nature of social interaction. For related documents, see ED 050 300 and ED 050 302-306. (CK)
