Cultural Pluralism and Social Change. A Collection of Position Papers. ISTE Report V.
Brandt, Richard M.; And Others
The eight papers in the report are tied together by the theme of pluralism and social change in an attempt to determine information needs in the area of inservice teacher education (ISTE) and to identify the contemporary issues surrounding ISTE. The first three papers describe case studies of substantial efforts in inservice education: a thirty-year child study movement devoted to the proposition that there are enormous individual differences among children which can be fully appreciated only in the context of each child's total personality; the Urban/Rural Program efforts to generate community-oriented inservice teacher training programs; and the attempt of Montgomery County, Maryland, public schools to mount a comprehensive teacher education program that would represent the needs both of the district and of individual teachers. Two papers address the future: a description of alternative conceptions and definitions of inservice teacher education and suggested languages which would permit us to talk coherently with one another using a wide variety of concepts; and a speculation on the meaning of general cultural change. Three papers explore multicultural education. (JMF)
