Perceptions of Practicing Teachers Regarding State Mandated Topics for Teacher Education.
Denton, Jon J.; And Others
This inquiry was conducted to determine the perceptions of classroom teachers regarding the curricular emphasis to place on various topics in teacher education. A mail survey request sent to 297 former students yielded returns from 125 subjects. Analyses of the returns yielded the following ordering of content domains: (1) classroom management; (2) instructional methods; (3) legal and ethical aspects; (3) measurement and evaluation; (4) curriculum planning; (5) needs of special populations; and (6) organization and management of schools. This ordering of domains suggests practicing teachers place greatest importance on topics associated with interacting with learners and secondary importance to other necessary roles. (JD)
