Middle Level Teacher Education Programs: A Second Survey (1986-87). Including Directory of Institutions with Special Middle Level Teacher Education Programs. Report.
McEwin, C. Kenneth; Alexander, William M.
A survey conducted in 1982 sought information on teacher education for the middle level schools. Responses to the survey from schools of education indicated that teacher preparation programs have not kept pace with the growing number of teachers needed, and the predominant emphasis in available programs has been at the undergraduate level. This document reports on a survey conducted in 1986-87 addressing the same schools and the same topic. The results of this follow-up study revealed that there has been very little change in the overall situation, although detailed analysis of the comparable findings indicated many interesting comparisons. Findings were compared in the following areas: (1) enrollments in middle school education programs; (2) program types; (3) courses offered; and (4) departments responsible for the programs. A brief discussion is presented on some issues and implications raised by the survey responses. A directory of institutions with special courses/programs for the preparation of middle level teachers is appended. Information is provided in the directory on academic degrees offered, major specialization, whether the program was added to another program, and whether the program offers special courses. (JD)
