Personalized Education for Teachers. An Introduction for Teacher Educators.
Fuller, Frances F.
This manual is first in the series "Personalized Education for Teachers," a program based on the thesis that truly personalized public education (that which is tailored to fit the personal needs and feelings of students) is possible now. The general purpose of the manual is to present a system of ideas and procedures which make it possible to personalize the education of elementary teachers and, by extension, the education of students of all ages. The first half of the manual is designed to help teacher educators to understand what prospective teachers are concerned about. A teacher concerns model is described which depicts the teacher concerns or growth motives which occur in a regular sequence. The second half describes application of the model and what it involves. Materials are listed to assist in applying the model through the use of two kinds of procedures for tailoring teacher education programs to fit the personal needs of prospective teachers. Desirable outcomes, costs, both economic and personal, and possible undesirable outcomes are described. Included are a list of 33 references; a list of 14 other items in the series (manuals, videotapes, assessment instruments, etc.); and an overview model for the use of these materials in the personalized education program which involves four steps: 1) assessment of teachers, 2) arousal (activation) of concerns, 3) awareness (perception) of feelings, and 4) resolution (learning) of concerns.
