Fordham Univ., Bronx, NY. School of Education.
A 1-year course for student teachers seeking certification for the nursery through the sixth grade is outlined in this document. The content of the course is divided into four areas: (1) directed observation (what can be learned from observation of the classroom; (2) learning and teaching of an individual child (how we know the individual child); (3) the curriculum of grades three through six (how curriculum can be made more relevant to student concerns); and (4) classroom teaching and learning procedures (how to structure and organize the class). The course would be conducted predominantly as a discussion group, although suggestions are made for guest lecturers, multimedia presentations, and student feedback. An extensive list of readings covering course content is included as part of the curriculum guide. Appendixes include an extensive bibliography, directions for what student teachers should observe, and a delineation of reading skills children should have at different grade levels. (JS)
