Teachers for the Real World.
Smith, B. Othanel; And Others
This broad outline for a teacher education program aimed at creating teachers capable of dealing with children of all races and backgrounds stresses the need for systematized instruction of teacher trainees. After a brief discussion of the importance of differentiated staffing and common schools, the report specifies: the need for and uses of extensive theoretical preparation of the teacher trainee prior to field experience, and cooperation of local schools, community, and college to produce training complexes (attended before internship) where teaching situations are first video-taped, analyzed, classified, and indexed by educators according to situational categories and theoretical concepts and then analyzed by teacher trainees to improve behavioral insight and teaching techniques. Also specified are: types of subject matter knowledge and how these relate and should relate to college courses and teaching; preparation of teachers in governing themselves as a professional group; and the goals and content of perennial teacher education. A memo on financial implementation is included. (LP)
