Mobilizing for Improved French Teacher Education.
Andersson, Theodore
This paper is addressed to the French teaching profession at large. The teacher's responsibilities toward his or her students, professional colleagues, administrators, professional associations, and the community are reviewed. Particular emphasis is placed on the obligations of the teacher trainer. Those responsible for educating new French teachers must be willing to study, discuss, and resolve the problems of teacher preparation with other teachers in their own departments and in other language departments, but the teacher trainer's influence must operate far beyond the walls of his own institution. He must collaborate with his colleagues in elementary and secondary schools and encourage his high school colleagues to send motivated students to appropriate university classes. As a member of one or more professional associations, the teacher trainer can share the results of his research and his innovative teaching ideas and can learn from other creative teachers. The teacher trainer and the student teacher are reminded that improved relations between educators and the communities they serve can lead to the development of new programs and to more opportunities for educational research.
