Can We Train Teachers Better?
Scarfe, N. V.
In order to improve teacher education programs, stress was placed on research and inquiry in the classroom. The results of these methods gave teachers information on the way in which children learn most effectively. The classroom was a vehicle for teachers to learn from children. Therefore, the classroom was an experimental laboratory which facilitated the learning of both teachers and students. Also stressed was the use of filmed lessons, microteaching, and simulation in teacher education programs. The study of these methods led from simple, practical experience to the more complex arrangement of planning and organizing school situations. This end result was accomplished through intensive university study with teaching demonstrations, discussions, classroom simulation, and the study of learning and behavior development in children. It is hoped that confidence and direction would, therefore, be provided to the future teacher before he undertook a full-time teaching schedule. (BRB)
