Preparing Teachers for the Integrated Day. Part One.
This report, sponsored by the National Association of Independent Schools, reviews plans to prepare teachers for the Integrated Day. This preparation attempts to give teachers new concepts replacing those which grew from formalism in the teachers' own learning. The new concepts revolve around the theory that education is a process of living and not a preparation for future living; the total environment is educational. English schools have developed three methods which supplement the training provided by universities. These three methods of praparing teachers for the Integrated Day include the advisory, teachers' centers, and the teachers' workshops. The advisory consists of 20 people, employed by the County Education Authority to provide support, reeducation, inspiration, and tangible aids to the county teachers. The teaching centers offer courses and ideas for the teacher; however no credit is given. Teacher workshops are the third method of teacher preparation. Detailed descriptions of workshops in England and the United States present reviews of the faculty, physical facilities and participants' evaluation. An appendix of workshop locations and developing agencies is included. (MJM)
