Atkin, J. Myron; And Others
This document contains three research reports dealing with teacher education in the U.S. "Changing Patterns of Teacher Education," by Atkin and Raths, attempts to (a) highlight innovative trends in preservice and inservice training; (b) outline relevant political, economic, and social factors; and (c) identify resulting policy issues. "The Effect of Innovations on Staffing Patterns and Teacher Roles," by Hyer and McClure, discusses 14 innovative practices now being used. The paper focuses on (a) rationale for adoption; (b) changes which resulted in instructional strategies; (c) teacher tasks and staffing patterns; (d) changes in resources; (e) use of technology and building design; (f) capital and operating costs; and (g) evaluation. "Staffing Patterns and Costs in Alternative Educational Futures," by Kiesling, discusses four promising educational practices that may be available by the 1980s. The first section of this paper discusses likely ramifications of present-day educational innovations. Section two presents four types of future schools which are suggested by present reforms. Section three illustrates staffing and cost ramifications and estimates. The appendix is entitled "Individualization of Instruction and Educational Reform and Criticism." (JS)
