The Future of Teacher Education: Needed Research and Practice. Conference Proceedings (College Station, Texas, May 1982).
Corrigan, Dean C., Ed.; And Others
This book contains seven papers presented at a conference on the future of teacher education. Richard M. Hersh examines the social organization of the school and the school's instruction and curriculum in "What Makes Some Schools and Teachers More Effective." In "Teacher Education: Needed Research and Practice for the Preparation of Teaching Professionals," Judith E. Lanier outlines paradigms for effective teachers. Two critical issues are discussed by Dean C. Corrigan in "Curriculum Issues in the Preparation of Teachers": (1) identifying, accepting, and teaching a common body of knowledge, skills, and professional values; and (2) establishing and enforcing quality controls. In "The Content in Teacher Education Programs," David C. Smith describes two PROTEACH conferences which reconceptualized content and components of an effective teacher education program. An overview is presented by Richard Wisniewski of Oklahoma legislation to improve the quality of teacher education in "The Law: A Step Forward in Oklahoma." Martin Haberman traces the history of student teaching and cites the need for further research in "Research Needed on Direct Experience." George Denemark presents "Closing Remarks: An Attempt at Synthesis." (JD)
