Teaching Teachers Teaching.
Wees, W. R.
This monograph, designed to stimulate national discussion, pictures "teacher education as it is" by indicating problems as deans and heads of departments see them, and by reporting innovative practices by which various universities are attempting to resolve some problems. The main sources of this information were university calendars, questionnaires mailed to 22 deans and chairpersons of departments of education, and interviews with eight deans. Section one, "Teacher Education As It Is," gives minimal educational requirements and competencies for teaching in elementary and secondary schools in each of the Canadian provinces. In section two, "Some Problems," 19 deans answer the question, "What do you believe to be the main problem or problems, if any, in teacher education in Canada?" Responses regarding financial support, relevance of academic courses, and turning theory into practice are included. Section three, "Innovations," includes responses to questions concerning experimental work being done or work that is of special importance in a province. (PD)
