The Societal Future and Teaching.
Rubin, Louis
This report deals with the special kinds of adaptive changes which may be demanded of teachers in a changing society. In discussing future inservice teacher education, certain needs are identified and enlarged upon. Emphasis is placed upon the following objectives: (1) the need to develop among youth the skills associated with problem-analysis and problem-solution; (2) the need to develop, throughout the curriculum, a high degree of social awareness; (3) the need to deepen students' understanding of participatory democracy, commitment to its ideals, and a sense of moral and civic responsibility; (4) the need to strengthen students' values and priorities, with respect to personal and public good; (5) the need to instill greater optimism regarding the human capacity to overcome social difficulties and heighten the quality of life; (6) the need to nurture, in every student, a clearer perception of how one's personal future can be shaped. Ways and means of encouraging teachers to develop professionally and improve their teaching skills with the above goals in mind are discussed. (JD)
