The Leisurely Pace in the Race Against Time: Baby-Steps Forward in Preparing Junior College Teachers.
Tolle, Donald J.
The first of the two major sections of this report deals with a review of the training of English and mathematics instructors. The results of a survey of English and mathematics department chairmen in 4-year institutions regarding their attitudes toward having or developing a specialized Master's degree program for the teaching of these subjects in the community college are presented. These results showed that for the two subject areas nearly 50% of the chairmen advocated the development of such programs in contrast to the considerably smaller percentage of schools actually having such programs. Section two of the report presented the results of an investigation of the occupational instructor preparation project at Southern Illinois University. Requirements for entering the program are discussed as well as program goals and objectives, practical and academic training received through the program, and financial aid to students enrolled in the program.
