A Guide for Urban-Teacher Development. Final Report.
Rubeck, Robert F.; And Others
This guide is intended to serve the information needs of the teacher-development decision maker, that is, of the teacher educator with special reference to urban schools. It is presented as a synthesis of information from a variety of sources and is divided into four sections, each a subdivision of the main subject--teacher development: 1) its aims and goals, 2) its role and function, 3) its program, 4) its resources. Each section contains content and activities designed to help the user actively plan his teacher-development programs; the current principles and practices are outlined, followed by a description of more desirable principles and practices. The user is then introduced to activities designed to help him measure his local conditions, and these measurements and the resulting judgments are used in planning his program. The following appendixes are included: 1) the Urban Teacher Development Questionnaire, with an explanation of its development, methodology, and content, 2) a review of the literature, an annotated bibliography of 202 items, 3) advisory conferences, 4) visits to ongoing projects, 5) letter requests, 6) techniques for the review of the literature, giving principal sources of information, and 7) use of the consultant, a checklist.
