Teacher Corps Conference. A Sharing of Experiences.
Bryant, Brenda, Ed.
This report comes out of the 1974 Teacher Corps Conference, which was held to acquaint Teacher Corps personnel with new ideas to enhance their abilities to train interns to work with children with special needs. The first part of the report is composed of 18 speeches on topics such as: community involvement in education, ethnic diversity, discrimination, performance-based teacher education, handicapped children, and the past and future of Teacher Corps. The next part consists of seven reports based on small, informal skill sessions held to give participants opportunities to learn about competency-based teacher education and diagnostic-prescriptive teaching. The majority of the presentations stress the problems and issues which have contributed to the imperfect functioning of the public schools, and represent a commitment on the part of speakers to try to show how the Teacher Corps can be a tool in improving the public school system through creating effective models of what can be done.
