Community Based Multicultural Teacher Education in Comparative Perspective. Teacher Education Forum Series. Vol. 2, No. 5.
Dawson, Martha E.
This paper is divided into two parts: the first is a description of the community-based multicultural teacher education program at Indiana University, and the second is a proposal for community-based teacher training programs in Africa. The first section discusses the means and objectives of the community-based multicultural teacher education program and lists the courses with brief descriptions. The courses are designed so that students have three levels of sensitizing experiences: exploratory, developmental, and intensive. The second part of the paper outlines a model for community-based multicultural teacher education in foreign countries, particularly African countries. Three models of team teaching are presented, utilizing African teachers and expatriates. Resources for education in Africa are identified, including sources for teachers, programs, and funds. The paper closes with a brief discussion of programs for Africans studying in American universities and programs of African studies for Afro-Americans. (HMD)
