The Preparation of Urban Teachers: A Proposed Syllabus. Working Paper One, NDEA National Institute for Advanced Study in Teaching Disadvantaged Youth.
Rivlin, Harry N.; And Others
This curriculum guide consists of working papers developed for four practicum courses by committees of consultants from 10 different schools and universities in New York. An introduction describes the Fordham program for which they were designed. Each syllabus lists objectives, content, activities, and readings (for students and instructors) under each major topic. The first course, "Children and Youth in Urban Schools," (which includes field experiences as school aides and as assistants in social case work agencies) has six units: the urban community, the urban family, institutional str"cture of the city, the child, the role of the school and other agencies in social change, and the urban teacher. The other three syllabuses are designed for three sections of a "Learning and Teaching" course for "apprentice teachers" engaged in student-teaching type activities. Two sections are for teachers of grades N-9. The first, emphasizing early childhood, includes units on apprentice teaching, the child, the school community, how children learn, desirable classroom atmosphere, curriculum, and materials of instruction. The second, emphasizing the middle grades, includes directed observation, the individual child, classroom procedures, curriculum. The final syllabus, for secondary school teachers, includes teaching skills, curriculum materials, methods, and principles of learning as related to the subject matter specialties. (JS)
