Teacher Education in Connecticut Still an Urgent Matter.
Roe, William H.; LaConte, Christine
This report describes 11 pilot projects which were initiated by the Connecticut Joint Teacher Education Committee (JTEC). The JTEC, which was created to administer two Public Acts established in 1968, consists of members of the Commission for Higher Education and members of the State Board of Education. The two Public Acts provide funds to establish pilot projects in teacher education. The JTEC set up an advisory committee representing a variety of interests to stimulate project ideas. The major part of this report is the description of the 11 pilot projects which were accepted for funding. Each project description includes theory, actual experiences, and, in some cases, a survey of the project's effectiveness. The projects concern merging theory and practice, the inner city, language and cultural differences, the handicapped, day care centers, junior high school students, individually guided education programs, the audio-tutorial technique of instruction, open classrooms, affective education in teacher training, and performance objectives. The report recommends that ideas which emerge from these projects be incorporated into the mainstream of teacher education in the state. It then lists those suggestions it feels would result in better teacher education in Connecticut. (MK)
