Joels, Rosie Webb
Education graduates from the University of Central Florida who received degrees between December, 1980, and August, 1983, participated in this follow-up study evaluating their preparation for teaching. The student teaching experience was rated most highly, as was specialization preparation. Foundation courses were perceived as weaker. Of foundation topics, the most highly rated were motivating students and classroom management and discipline. Among nine elementary education subject areas, mathematics, reading, and language arts were rated most highly in instructional competence and importance. Secondary education majors rated courses within the College of Education (COE) and courses outside the COE. English and language arts had the highest rating for courses in the COE and mathematics had the highest rating for courses outside the COE. The questionnaire is appended which contained demographic information, perceptions of academic advising, and future career plans, in the last section. (JD)
