Needed Improvements in Distributive Teacher Education.
Knouse, Reno S.
Twenty-nine distributive teacher educators ranking items of importance in developing teacher education, felt that the following should receive immediate attention: student teaching experience in coordination, various phases of adult education, work experience in management, development of technical courses, and development and use of criteria for selecting prospective coordinators. Some of the other emerging considerations for distributive teacher education were: (1) More attention should be given to the distributive education club program to insure worthwhile activities, (2) Coordinators need preparation to assume leadership of a local club, (3) A future teacher section is needed in the Distributive Education Clubs of America, (4) Required qualifications and training for teacher coordinators on this must be determined on the junior college level, (5) Area teacher-education programs are needed, (6) Special teacher-education programs for those planning careers in city, area, or state supervision need to be developed, (7) There is a need for college textbooks, (8) Because the demand is greater than the supply, ways and means of recruiting prospective coordinators must be developed, and (9) Training in practical research is needed.
