Education and the Liberal Arts: The A & T Connection.
Barnett, Dorothy Prince; Taylor, Ethel Franklin
The School of Education and the College of Arts and Sciences at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University have always had a close working relationship in the development of teachers. This is due, in part, to the fact that the General Education Curriculum (English, history, mathematics, biology, and the arts), which is the foundation for both the personal and professional development of students, is housed in the College of Arts and Sciences. This collaborative tradition intensified within the last two years, because of: (1) public criticism of the quality of teacher performance; (2) state mandates for increasing the general competence of students; (3) national studies which emphasized the need for a better public educational system, and (4) increased societal realization of the importance of the optimum utilization of human resources. Thus, the purporse of this paper is (1) to describe the rationale for the collaborative efforts between the two academic units to improve teacher education; (2) to summarize the educational experiences and activities developed to achieve these goals and objectives; and (3) to share with others the immediate results and the long-range prospects for this collaboration. Additionally, this curricular model may be of value to other colleges and universities which are interested in strengthening their teacher education programs. (Author/JD)
