Appendix S. Broad Curricular Planning for the ComField Model Teacher Education Program.
Elements to be included in the teacher education program must be organized to integrate the instructional (cognitive) and personal-social (affective) aspects of teaching. The college setting must provide explicit behavioral objectives known to the student, learning activities organized around cultural problems relevant to elementary school teaching, the types of affective learning required for successful teaching, and a reward system reflecting the importance of individual counseling and laboratory and clinical experiences. Specific component proposals include (1) general education experiences to acquaint the student with the various fields of study, to build basic verbal and intellectual skills prerequisite to successful functioning at a higher level, and to assist the student in defining his own strengths and weaknesses in the college setting; (2) an interdisciplinary major relevant to the needs of the elementary teacher; (3) content-to-be-taught courses which emphasize the fundamental precepts underlying the content field and its system of organization and operation; (4) professional education to integrate the knowledges, commitments, and various personal characteristics of the teacher into a functional philosophy of classroom teachings; (5) an internship applying the content and procedures to the public school setting. (A nine-item bibliography is included. This document and SP 002 155-SP 002 180 comprise the appendixes for the ComField Model Teacher Education Program Specifications in SP 002 154.) (JS)
