Knowledge Bases for the Beginning Teacher.
Reynolds, Maynard C.; Strom, Sharon M.
During 1987 and 1988, a Knowledge Base Action Group appointed through the Center for Change in Teacher Education sponsored a series of leadership workshops in various regions of the country on institutional change processes and ways to use the knowledge bases in designing teacher preparation programs. The major work of the group was to assemble a set of juried statements prepared by leading figures in various fields of education to reflect the knowledge needed by professionally responsible beginning teachers. In this context, a detailed study was conducted of beliefs about the knowledge bases for teacher education in four separate settings. The aim was to secure data for use in action group planning and development activities. This report provides preliminary findings from these surveys. Three of the surveys were conducted in connection with workshops devoted to a consideration of the knowledge bases for teacher education. The fourth survey was conducted within one large university faculty group, using a mailed questionnaire. A copy of the questionnaire is appended as well as tables displaying summaries of questionnaire results. (JD)
