This final Bulletin of the National Institute reviews the activities it has sponsored since June 1966. Major articles report the four Student/Beginning Teacher Conferences to evolve recommendations for new conceptual models of teacher education; the Conference on New Curriculum Materials and the Teaching of the Disadvantaged; the Professors in the Classroom Project to bring college professors in contact with disadvantaged pupils; the Four States Project in California, Colorado, Oregon and Wisconsin to fashion statewide models of programs for improving teacher education; and the Inter-Institutional Program Development Project in which each of 25 groups of institutions attempted to develop foundations for cooperation and to plan and develop programs for training teachers. A report of the activities of the National Steering Committee and Task Force includes a summary of recommendations for changing teacher education and an outline of relevant issues in the training of teachers for the disadvantaged. Other articles report the Developing Institutions Project; the Yale Conference of educators and behavioral scientists; and three Midwest conferences on youth, work, and urbanization. Included also are a brief summary of the institute's organization and purposes and a list of its 17 publications. (JS)
