Contemporary Comment on Changing Teacher Education.
Majer, Kenneth S., Ed.
Viewpoints, v49 n4 p1-112 July 1973
A series of writings describing some contemporary thoughts about training professional educators and some efforts to meet changing needs are collected in this issue of "Viewpoints." An article on methods of inquiry, written by Ivor Davies, is the first chapter. The problems of the bilingual Latino, with respect to his American schooling, are described by Horacio Lewis. Beryl Brown discusses the problems in building a single college curriculum in educational psychology to meet a plurality of needs for a variety of programs and students. The editor, Kenneth Majer, describes a program for preparing college teachers. Some guidelines for performance-based teacher education are provided by Jerry Brown and James Okey. Robert Barr and Daniel Burke recount how they are training student teachers for alternative schools. In a chapter on preparing English teachers to meet changing needs, Michael Flanigan articulates a need for cooperative effort among schools of education, departments of English, and the public schools. The need for becoming aware of our own creative nature is stressed by Vivian Sherman. In the final chapter, Majer and Nicholas Anastasiow offer some practical thoughts on how teachers can put their new program efforts into an evaluation perspective. (TO)
