Curriculum Development in Teacher Education in Asia. Final Report of the Regional Meeting of Teacher Educators in Asia. (Quezon City, P.I., Sept. 23-Oct 3. 1969).
Philippines Univ., Quezon City.
This report is divided into three main sections. The first section consists of a short general survey of the state of teacher education in Asia today, with suggestions for improvement. The problem of change-over from an imposed colonial language to the native language is recognized as important. The next section contains a list of conference participants and summaries of the four opening speeches. The third and largest section is a curriculum guide for teacher education developed by the conference participants. This guide divides the curriculum into eight broad areas: 1) foundations of education--philosophical, psychological, and social; 2) teaching materials and methods, evaluation, and research; 3) school organization and administration; 4) student teaching; 5) community and adult education; 6) health and physical education; 7) practical arts--agriculture, animal husbandry, handicrafts, and industrial arts; 8) education for recreation and leisure--music, dance, and drama. Objectives, content, and activities for each area are suggested. (RT)
