Teacher Education: The Young Teacher's View. A Report of Four Regional Conferences for Student Teachers and Beginning Teachers of the Disadvantaged. Project Report Two, NDEA National Institute for Advanced Study in Teaching Disadvantaged Youth.
Kenney, Helen J.; And Others
This publication summarizes the proceedings and outcomes of four conferences, each of which had the same purposes: to identify, clarify, and specify the issues relevant to preparing teachers of disadvantaged youth; and to recommend substantive changes and appropriate strategies for improving the preservice and inservice education of these teachers. An introductory section summarizes the background, settings, and individual characteristics of the four conferences--in Los Angeles, New Orleans, Detroit, and Boston--each of which was attended by approximately 70 student teachers and beginning teachers. The body of the report consists of a synthesis of the conference discussions and recommendations, emphasizing several major themes and indicating consensus positions. Recommendations (all of which focus "on the needed revolution in teacher education") are listed under two headings: "The Practicum: Program Note--or Panacea" and "Theory Courses: Knowledge of Most Worth." Included are brief descriptions of two "action programs" proposed by each conference to implement conference ideas. Conference program schedules are appended. (JS)
