In-Service Teacher Education--Sources in the ERIC System.
Edelfelt, Roy A.
A total of 256 ERIC 1973 and 1974 citations dealing with inservice teacher education was reviewed. Types of documents included project and research reports, syntheses of theory and research, precis of doctoral theses, program proposals, and evaluation studies. Programs to improve the teaching of reading and math to disadvantaged students were numerous, and introductions to new curricula in other subject areas were well presented. Although many subjects were treated, the reports reflect little attempt to formulate a comprehensive program. Too often, objectives were narrow and unrelated to a larger purpose, and most of the programs focused on the teacher as an individual rather than as a member of a group. None of the reported programs was comprehensive, dealing broadly with the professionalization of teachers in a full sense. Few of the reports dealt with formal graduate study. Four documents dealing with broad concerns are identified, and a 30-item selected annotated bibliography is included. (MBM)
