Teacher Education for the Culturally Different. Appendix C of a Final Report.
Schmitt, Henry E.
Developed as part of a project designed to provide a synthesis of literature and practice relating to the career education of disadvantaged students, this proposed teacher education program attempts to represent a systematic orientation, induction, preparation, and professional continuum which eliminates the abrupt lines of terminal experiences normally associated with current agencies preparing teachers for the culturally different. The proposed model, which is designed to place decision making power at the local school system level, consists of: (1) Phase 1, the preservice component, which is intended to prepare student teaching and professional university interns as well as clerical, teacher, and technical aides; (2) Phase II, the inservice component, which is designed to serve first year teachers of minority students and teachers who have been actively involved in teaching these students; and (3) Phase III, the graduate or internship component. The objectives, implementation strategies, and other information are provided for each component. In addition to the proposed program, a discussion of qualities needed by effective teachers and descriptions of three agencies preparing teachers for the culturally different are included.
