Improving Teacher Education. Resources and Recommendations.
Friedman, Myles I.; And Others
This book has a threefold purpose. First, it provides a problem-solving framework for comprehensively analyzing and attacking current weaknesses in both pre- and in-service teacher education. Next, it explains how this approach can be applied by providing concrete examples of procedures and products appropriate to each of three problem-solving stages: identifying problems, designing solutions, and testing and achieving solutions. Finally, it demonstrates the use of this approach at the macro level for implementing comprehensive pre- and in-service programs, as well as at the micro level in facilitating individual professional growth. The appendices contain sample forms for collecting and evaluating information on teacher education programs, and a comprehensive bibliography on selected reference texts. (JD)
