Community College Teacher Preparation Programs in the United States: A Bibliography with Introductory Notes.
Ross, Naomi V.
The introductory note to this bibliography explains the reasons for the existence of community college teacher preparation programs, how these programs are generated and operated, and sketches three possible alternative program models which are reflected in the literature. The Cosmetic Approach would supplement disciplinary preparation with elective courses on community colleges, but it would not be a complete degree program. The Standard Approach provides a degree program which would include courses emphasizing breadth in a discipline, educational theory and practice, and the historical, psychological, sociological, and educational aspects of the community college, as well as internships and inservice programs. The Center Approach would contain all of the aspects of the Standard Approach, but would include a research requirement. The annotated, cross-referenced bibliography contains books, articles, dissertations, and speeches from the 1950's to the present, which have been chosen either for their representative nature or for their potential usefulness in developing a program. The references, many of which are included in ERIC, are divided into seven sections: Evaluation, Graduate Centers, Inservice Training, Internships, New Degree Programs, Preservice Programs, and Specific Subject Matter Area, Skill, or Understanding.
