Undergraduate and Graduate Teacher Preparation--A Student-Centered Approach.
Letts, Dennis Lee
This is a report of a year of experimental teaching at Southeastern State College, Oklahoma, in 1970-71. The experimental nature of the research was to employ ideas and methods of contemporary "romantic" educational theorists in teaching an undergraduate English methods class and an experienced teacher graduate class in Recent Trends in English Teaching. The project later included two additional experienced teacher graduate classes, one in New Materials for English Teachers and one in Modern Poetry. The undergraduate methods class were assured they would all get A's and the only requirement was to design an original project and write a report of it. The graduate classes were conducted as much as possible, considering the experience of the members, like the undergraduate classes. Emphasis in the materials class was in using films and in the poetry class of reading poetry with which the students were unfamiliar. Emphasis was on response rather than on explication. Results of the undergraduate class were encouraging while results of the graduate classes were helpful to some of the experienced teachers. (AL)
