Preparing Minority Students To Be Teachers in the 1990's and the 21st Century: A Working Paper.
Morris, Vivian Gunn
The purposes of this literature search were to document the need to increase the number of minority teachers in the nation's elementary and secondary schools and review recommendations for designing a teacher education model to meet that need. Community colleges have proven to be the most successful institutions for helping Blacks and Hispanics make the transition from secondary to higher education. Recommendations from the literature provide the bases for the establishment of a model teacher education program by community colleges in cooperation with public schools and four-year institutions. Key components of this model include: recruitment in middle schools, high schools, non-traditional populations, and on-campus; support services to include attractive financial aid packages, academic support, and mentoring teams; curriculum development that includes multicultural experiences and field experiences in the first year of study; articulation agreements with four-year institutions; program evaluation that includes value-added measures; a multi-ethnic project team; and an advisory committee. A bibliography containing 48 references is included. (LL)
