Making Teacher Education More Relevant.
Bagley, Ayers, Ed.
This document contains seven papers together with 32 abstracts of papers prepared for Society of Professors of Education sectional meetings, the American Educational Studies Association, the Comparative and International Education Society, and the History of Education Society. Three graduate students and one senior present views on the relevance of teacher education from their own experience and find that most programs are unsuccessful in preparing teachers for the world in which they will teach. The papers of three professors of education support these views and offer some suggestions for improvement by bringing teacher education courses into closer touch with the schools, changing the methods of teacher placement, and applying systematic research methods to the processes of teacher education. The abstracts cover the following topics: (1) social studies abroad; (2) educational psychology; (3) administration, supervision, and curriculum; (4) systems approach to education courses; (5) comparative philosophy and education; (6) foundations of education; (7) documentary film in education; (8) a first course in educational studies; (9) overseas education; (10) the history of Negro education; and others.
