A Resource Paper for Improving Teacher Education in Wisconsin; An Elaboration of the Report of the Task Force on Teacher Education.
Andrews, L. O.; And Others
This document, an elaboration on "The Report of The Task Force on Teacher Education," presents extracts of most of the specific items from that report, recasts them, and elaborates on them in an effort to prepare the way for the implementation of that original report. The preparation of this document was guided by two objectives: (a) to structure a more comprehensive pattern of goals or objectives for a new thrust in teacher education in Wisconsin and (b) to add supplementary materials to the original report that can be used to assist in the implementation of the total plan. Included is a schematic diagram of the major emphases for inclusion in a projected teacher education program. This diagram is divided into sections for the preclinical program, the clinical program, and the residency program. Two reported major changes from the traditional program that are included in this schematic presentation are early and continuous use of a wide range of direct experiences and some kind of continuous competency evaluation including both personal and professional assessment. Also included in this document are sections on instructional patterns and curriculum content, support systems, arrangements and procedures, alternatives, intermediary stages, basic ideas relevant to the report, policy and program issues, and inservice teacher education.
