Guidelines for a More Reality Based Teacher Preparation Program for the Future.
Cherniack, Mark; And Others
Futures Information Interchange, v2 n1 Oct 1974
It is important to consider the following trends when planning inservice and preservice programs: (a) multiple crisis potential (food, energy, environment, water, war and peace issues, etc.); (b) declining birth rate resulting in smaller numbers of humans in traditional school-age brackets; and (c) increasing demand for continuing education. Following are some ideas designed to meet these needs: (a) lengthening of practice teaching experience and broadening of inservice teachers' experience; (b) involvement of teachers in organized activities outside the standard curriculum and more school/community cooperation; (c) experience in future studies to provide skills in anticipatory decision-making; (d) experience in sensitivity training to develop increased awareness of needs and sensitivities of others; and (e) training in values clarification to aid individuals in building their own value systems. (This document also includes activities in future studies for elementary and secondary school students. (PB)
