The Socialization of Teachers for Early Childhood Programs.
Katz, Lilian G.
Teacher education can be thought of as sets of activities intended to socialize candidates into the segments of the occupation of teaching. It is suggested that these activities have at least eight interrelated parameters, and that variables in each of these parameters impinge upon the processes of socialization. The variables discussed are: (1) goals, the intended outcomes of specific activities, and assessment of these achievements; (2) characteristics of candidates; (3) characteristics of staff; (4) content, those facts, information, ideas, skills, etc., transmitted to candidates; (5) time, the duration of the program, timing, and sequence of activities; (6) ethos, the social and intellectual climate of the socialization setting reflected in the interpersonal relationships among candidates and staff members; (7) location and setting of the teacher education project; and (8) regulations including state certifications boards, federal agencies, school districts, legislatures, etc. Selected issues and questions in each parameter are discussed with special reference to early childhood personnel and the special problems of teachers in preschool settings.
