The Role of the State Educational Agency in the Development of Innovative Programs in Student Teaching.
Edelfelt, Roy A., Ed.
In the introduction to this collection of papers, William Drummond summarizes the national conference proceedings and personal reactions to them. Chapter 1, "The Revolution Explosion," is a talk by Frankie Beth Nelson about the way an anthropologist looks at the school and its purposes. Chapter 2 (SP 002 631), "Student Teaching: The State of the Art," is a paper presented by E. Graham Pogue dealing with such problems as scheduling, facilities, supervision, financing, and learning efficiency in professional laboratory experiences. Chapter 3, "A National Survey of State Practices and Trends in Student Teaching," by Mary Bullock Hess is a summary of a study done in partial fulfillment of the doctoral of education degree. Chapter 5 is a series of 10 short papers on "What I Think Student Teaching Should Become" by Kathleen Amershek, Margaret Ammons, L. O. Andrews, Richard Collier, Margaret Lindsey, Hans Olsen, Robert Reynolds, Donald Sharpe, E. Brooks Smith, and Joe Smith. Chapter 6 (ED 024 655) is a paper by James Stone proposing a structure for a state organization of Education Professions Institutes. A "Coda" by Roy Edelfelt attempts to "pull together in brief form the things which need attention if student teaching is to evolve into a significant practicum experience." (JS)
