From Analysis to Synthesis in Teacher Education.
Wilson, Sybil E.; And Others
Teaching is seen as an integrated and integrative act and the need in teacher education to promote the prospective teacher's ability to synthesize elements of the instructional program into coherent patterns is stressed. The justification for synthesis is presented in four characteristics suggesting essentials of a teacher education program (an identifiable set of generalizable skills forming a critical objective of the program, a common set of attitudes that characterize the teacher role, common professional expectations of the teacher, and a basic teaching certificate for the graduate) and in curriculum commonalities (foundation studies, curriculum studies, study of pedagogy, and practice teaching experiences). Illustrative cases are presented to show how these syntheses are translated into program actualities through (l) staff development, (2) program articulation, (3) program organization, (4) program implementation, and (5) program evaluation.
