A Descriptive Study of Teacher Education Programs for Navajo Indian College Students.
Jackson, Virginialee D.
The paper describes four alternative teacher training approaches offering Navajo Indian college students the opportunity to become certified classroom teachers within proximity of their homes and jobs on the reservation. Programs discussed include Navajo Tribal Teacher Education Program, Career Opportunities Program, Teacher Corps, and a representative regular college program offered by Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff. The purpose of the paper is to give prospective Navajo teachers insight into the ways and means of obtaining the education prerequisite to becoming fully certified elementary school teachers, hopefully encouraging an increased number of Navajos to enter the teaching profession and to remain on the reservation. Two of the approaches discussed are associated with nationwide, federally funded programs. An attempt is also made to describe the history and philosophy of the Career Opportunities Program and Teacher Corps. (Author/KM)
