Societal and Educational Projections: Analysis and Implications, Appendix B. Vol. II, A Plan for Managing the Development, Implementation and Operation of a Model Elementary Teacher Education Program.
Sell, G. Roger
This paper describes some major implications of the ComField projections for the planning and evaluation of a teacher education program, under the following headings: 1) society's need for education; 2) education's response to society's needs; 3) emergent goals, curriculum, organization, and personnel roles; 4) the generic functions and training needed by educational personnel to operate effectively and efficiently within the emergent educational contexts. Other objectives requiring consideration are 1) the relationship between the individual and society; the processes of change, innovation, and adaptation; the needs for resource development and utilization; the relationship between history, culture, and social structure; the relationship between family and community life; the issue of how people govern themselves; and the relationship of these influences to education; 2) problem-solving capability through various methodologies and strategies; 3) the relationship between man and environment; 4) the capability to perceive and communicate effectively; and 5) accurate self-knowledge. The program objectives must provide the direction and focus for the instructional experiences and management activities. The outcomes of the program will rest on the quality and interpretation of the objectives. Related documents are SP 004 155, and SP 004 157 to SP 004 166. (MBM)
