Native Teacher Education: A Survey of Native Indian and Inuit Teacher Education Projects in Canada.
More, Arthur J.
Thirteen Native Indian and Inuit (Eskimo) teacher education projects in Canada were surveyed to provide for better understanding, to facilitate the exchange of ideas, and to assist new projects, Indian organizations, government officials, funding agencies, and researchers. The survey format, completed by program staff, encompasses: (1) basic information such as names of programs, their directors, and student representatives, if any; (2) general description including type of curriculum and diploma requirements; and (3) detailed description, listing objectives, statistical features, course offerings and requirements, student teaching experiences, and program support services. Other categories covered are governance, which may include administrative and advisory features, staffing, including job responsibilities, admission requirements, funding, number of graduates, and unique and/or important aspects. Appended is a paper entitled "Native Indian Teacher Education in Canada." It analyzes the need for such special programs, broadly defines types of programs available, analyzes their effectiveness, and identifies their problems. (MM)
