Multicultural Education Through Competency-Based Teacher Education.
Hunter, William A., Ed.
This publication is the result of a Multicultural Education/Competency Based Teacher Education (M/CBTE) project which, among other objectives, sought to bring together the findings of separate studies, projects, and research efforts. The project proposed to take a broader approach to the overall problem of quality education by seeking to identify generic concerns and needs common to all ethnic groups and diverse cultural situations. The project at the same time sought to identify those needs felt to be unique or more relevant to certain cultural circumstances and situations than others. Part 1 of this document is in the form of a prologue; it is entitled "Antecedents to Developments of and Emphasis on Multicultural Education." Parts 2-5 were written by four educators and/or teams from the black American, Spanish-speaking American, and native American academic communities who were invited to contribute. Part 2 treats teacher competencies from the perspective of the black American educator. Part 3 treats teacher competencies from the Spanish-speaking educator's perspective (including views of Puerto Rican Americans, Chicano Americans, and Cuban Americans). Part 4 treats teacher competencies from the perspective of the native American, recognizing the divergencies of views among the nearly 300 tribal groups. Part 5 seeks to identify teacher competencies common to all groups as well as those recognized in the general society as evidence of accepted requirements and standards. (Editor/JA)
