Innovation in Teacher Education: The Challenge to Prepare Teachers as Agents of Change.
Razik, Taher A.
The research on which this report is based has aimed at an assessment of the nature of reform of education content and associated processes in developed Western nations as well as in the Arab world. Chapter 1 is designed to clarify the concept of "education content" and to specify processes involved in "content reform," as these terms are used and understood in the educational literature of the modern world. Chapter 2 explores the relevance these concepts and processes have had in the development of education in several Western nations. Chapter 3 reviews the current status of education content change efforts in the Arab world, and Chapter 4 indicates some directions which future reform may take. (JD)
