Teaching Assessment Workshop Project 30.
O'Connor, Daniel F.; And Others
A teaching assessment workshop was sponsored by the University of Northern Colorado Department of Sociology and College of Education. The participants were educators from inner city schools, teachers working with at-risk students, and future teachers willing to work with minority students. The goals of the workshop were to: (1) assess strengths and weaknesses in teacher preparation in the areas of curriculum and content, work experience, and general preparation; (2) identify the most serious problems with and impediments to effective teaching; and (3) identify rewards of teaching and the ideal supportive environment. This report summarizes the participants' recommendations and insights, and presents a series of summary statements for each session, with specific quotes from the minority educators. The first session of the workshop was designed to elicit the opinions of minority teachers concerning their preparation for teaching. The second session focused on strategies for attracting minority high school and college students to the teaching profession. The third session proposed suggestions and recommendations for keeping minority teachers in the teaching profession. In the final session, teachers reflected on their own teaching experience, discussing the barriers to effective teaching as well as the intrinsic rewards of teaching. (JD)
