Karls, John B.
A suggested plan for improving the training of teachers for urban schools includes inservice and on-the-job activities, with both apprentice teachers and experienced teachers involved. The plan, extending a full year, would require cooperation between a university or teacher education institution and one or more cooperating school systems. Each year's overall program would be geared to specific needs of the participating group. The program can be construed as a scrutiny of the field of English education, geared to the goal of preparing the teachers for instructional leadership within the urban area. Courses included in the program are The Practice of English Teaching, Sociology of (English) Teaching, Group Dynamics and Sensitivity Training, and Psychology of Adolescence. In addition to the courses, a number of elective workshops and seminars would be offered. Under this plan, the urban teacher participates in and plans a continuing process of education suited to his particular situation. (DB)
