Standards for Educators of Exceptional Children in Canada.
Hardy, Madeline I.; And Others
The introduction to standards for educators of exceptional children in Canada focuses on the need for teacher education programs and the rationale behind standards for educators. Discussion of teacher education includes the following topics: the individual's self and society, understanding the learner and learning process, general competencies in education of children, competencies in areas of concentration, and practical experiences. Teacher education programs for undergraduates, graduates, certification, and continuing education are covered. Qualifications in regard to necessary knowledge are then examined for teachers, administrators, professionals in allied fields, and nonprofessionals. Responsibility for teacher education is then viewed from the roles of the federal and provincial governments, education faculties, and local school authorities. Brief discussion of accreditation of teacher education programs concludes the book. (CB)
