Teacher Education in Liberal Arts Settings: Achievements, Realities & Challenges.
Tom, Alan R., Ed.
Six papers explore the liberal arts institution's opportunities to improve teacher education to meet society's intensified demands within the limitations faced by liberal arts institutions. The many advantages such institutions can offer in preparation of teachers, the collaborative efforts institutions can engage in to improve their programs, and the obstacles many institutions experience are highlighted. The following papers are presented: (1) "A Future Role for Liberal Arts Colleges in the Preparation of Teachers" (Hendrik D. Gideonse); (2) "Excellence in Teacher Education: The Liberal Arts College Perspective" (Ann M. Rule and Charles M. Stanton); (3) "Private Teacher Education: Profiles and Prospects" (Robert K. Wimpelberg, Jean A. King, and Nancy J. Nystrom); (4) "Small Colleges and Educational Consortia: The Beloit Experience" (Thomas F. Warren); (5) "Collaboration for Quality: The Consortium for Excellence in Teacher Education" (Eva F. Travers); and (6) "Educating and Evaluating Beginning Teachers in Virginia" (Robert McNergney, Michael Caldwell, and Joanne Reina). (JD)
