Designing a High Quality Practicum.
Canadian Teachers' Federation, Ottawa (Ontario).
This document presents the proceedings of a 1974 workshop by the Canadian Teacher Federation's Teacher Education Committee on designing a quality practicum. The introduction to the document indicates that the proceedings were broken into two parts. Part 1 addressed the basic question, What are we trying to do? and covered the following topics: practicum objectives, the value of the U.S. performance-based approach for Canadian programs, and methods for clearly describing objectives without becoming excessively detailed or descriptive. Part 2 was concerned with the achievement of objectives once they had been set and described current practices and specific programs. Some of the individual presentations in this document are in French, some are in English. Included as division headings are the following: The Case of Reform in Teacher Education; The Behavioral Outcomes Approach in Teacher Education; Rationales for the Integration of Theory and Practices; Roles and Responsibilities of Teachers and Their Associations in Teacher Education; Beyond the Practicum: The Transition Period of the Beginning Teacher; Conflict and Consensus in the Designs for a High Quality Practicum; and Reactions to the Teacher Viewpoint.
