Billesoe, Per, Ed.
This order presents regulations on the teacher training requirements for the Danish Folkeskole (municipal primary and lower secondary school). The document is organized into seven chapters. Chapter 1 presents the 4-year program's objectives: to provide preservice teachers with subject-related and pedagogical insights; to train them to cooperate, plan, conduct, and evaluate teaching; and to encourage students to feel committed to and take pleasure from teaching. Chapter 2 addresses program content, both in terms of subjects and subject areas. Chapter 3 deals with optional courses including the teaching of adults. Chapter 4 lists 24 individual subjects and subject areas. Chapter 5, on assessment, indicates that coursework is to be completed by examinations which may be oral, written, or a combination, and that practice teaching shall be completed by an assessment of the student's teaching proficiency. Chapter 6 includes detailed regulations with respect to the curriculum. Chapter 7 gives details on enforcement dates of this order and on the force of the regulations with regard to students who are already in their teacher education program. (LL)
