The Changing Role of the Teacher. International Perspectives.
Goble, Norman M.; Porter, James F.
The nature of social change and its implications for the teacher role, and universal goals for teacher training, are the subjects of this study compiled from conference reports of the 35th International Conference on Education. The first section of this book, "The Teacher in a Changing World," contains five chapters on the following topics: (1) school and society; (2) stresses of change; (3) the function of teaching; (4) interaction: school and community; and (5) constraints of reality. The topics in the second section, "Learning to Teach: Priorities for Action," are: (1) the personal education of the teacher; (2) initial training; (3) continuing teacher education; and (4) teacher education: the essential interface between theory and practice. Appended are brief discussions on characteristics of less-developed regions, approaches to teacher education, teacher education in developing countries, and recommendations on the changing role of the teacher and its influence on professional training.
