Excellence in Teacher Education: 1969 Distinguished Achievement Awards of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education.
American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, Washington, DC.
This pamphlet describes the Distinguished Achievement Awards of The American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education which were conceived in 1965 as an annual event to encourage member colleges and universities to describe their successful programs and, in turn, to stimulate other institutions to greater action. Presented in the first half of the pamphlet are the 1969 awards recipients and descriptions of their programs. The Distinguished Achievement Award recipient was the University of Connecticut for its program, Educating Teachers for the City (see SP 002 015), which features confrontation with and immersion in the realities of a metropolitan area with the ghetto providing 90 percent of the educational environment and the formal seminar providing 10 percent. Other institutions receiving awards for distinguished achievement were Concordia Teachers College, Nebraska; Chadron State College, Nebraska; College of Saint Scholastica, Minnesota; and Indiana University. Those receiving special recognition were National College of Education, Illinois; Fordham University, New York; Our Lady of the Lake College, Texas; Temple University, Pennsylvania; State University College of Arts and Sciences, New York; and Indiana State University. The second half of the pamphlet consists of brief descriptions of each entry (a total of 84) in the 1969 awards program. Also included is the entry schedule for the 1970 program. (SM)
