Teacher Education in a Liberal Arts Context.
Ramapo Coll. of New Jersey, Mahwah.
The secondary teacher education program at Ramapo College, scheduled to begin in the fall of 1971, consists of a required 24-credit sequence of ten blocks. Each block is classified as an "inquiry block" or an "action block." Students are required to enroll in an action block for each corresponding inquiry block. Inquiry blocks cover sociology of education, psychology of education, philosophy of education, curriculum development, and teaching methods. Corresponding action blocks provide for field experiences in the community, sensitivity training, writing of research papers, curriculum and instructional materials development, and student teaching. Options in student teaching include teaching in private schools or Job Corps centers, student teaching abroad, or team teaching. In accordance with the school's philosophy of emphasizing preparation in the liberal arts, prospective teachers will not be able to major in education. (RT)
