Models for Revising Teacher Education.
Wright, J. Zeb., Ed.
Each of five papers describe a model for teacher education. "Levels of Involvement: A Descriptive Theory Model," identifies and examines seven levels: 1) classroom settings; 2) extended classroom settings; 3) contrived settings; 4) real settings, strictly controlled; 5) real settings, partially controlled; 6) real settings, loosely controlled; and 7) real settings, autonomous. "A Humanistic Approach to Education" deals with a program consisting of three blocks of learning experiences: 1) human encounter with self, community, and youngster; 2) human encounter with basic teaching skills; and 3) human encounter with real teaching. "A Proposal for an Experimental Program in Professional Preservice Education" uses a model that incorporates the total professional education of teachers and is divided into four quadrants: learner, quest areas, teaching/learning ecology, and profession. "The Legitimate Role of the Professions in Teacher Preparation" takes the position that the education professions are the legitimate authority to hold the colleges accountable and proposes a 2-week Candidacy Experience conducted in a public school by professional teachers as the final stage of preservice preparation. "A Model for a Multi-Institutional Teacher Education Center" describes a model which may be applicable either in a state-wide plan or in heavily populated school districts where several institutions of higher learning compete for student teachers.
