The Development of Case Studies on the Manner in Which Teachers Are Introduced to Teaching in Schools in Low-Income Areas. State-of-the-Problem Report.
This report focuses on how teachers can best be introduced to teaching in low-income schools. The report is based on findings in research literature and documents. An in-depth literature review draws on materials from a number of different educational disciplines for perspectives on training methods, competencies, characteristics, and other factors that influence effective teaching. Documents specifically about Teacher Corps projects are separately examined, and common denominators in training methods are identified, especially in the area of multicultural education. A synopsis of the state of the problem is offered, and issues of central concern which have emerged from the literature and document reviews are summarized. Recommendations are made of aproaches which might lead to the resolution of some of the key problem areas. Separate annotated bibliographies of the books, journal articles, and documents cited in each of the two sections are appended. (JD)
