Program Priorities in Teacher Education.
Tittle, Carol Kehr
As part of a project to develop recommendations for program developments in teacher education, a number of program proposals were developed by members of the Committee on National Program Priorities in Teacher Education (CNPPTE). Abstracts of the program proposals were prepared and circulated to critics who were asked to rate separately the major ideas in the abstracts. The purpose of the ratings was to guide the development of final Committee recommendations and to assist Committee members in further development of individual program proposals. The list of critics to review and rate ideas was developed from names submitted by CNPPTE members and U.S. Office of Education staff. The reviewers represented school and community groups, school administrators and teachers, critics of teacher education, associations for professional groups in education, and university faculty and administrators. A total of 70 abstracts was mailed and 38 were returned. Reviewers also suggested ideas which they felt had been overlooked. Results indicated three items rated as critical concerns by 80 per cent of the reviewers: establishment of performance-based teacher education programs, development of measuring instruments for knowledge, skills and observation of teaching methods and personalization of teacher training programs. Five additional items were rated critical by at least 60 per cent of the group. Additional suggestions and concerns are included. (Related Document 005 318) (MJM)
