Achieving World Class Standards: The Challenge for Educating Teachers. Proceedings of the OERI Study Group on Educating Teachers for World Class Standards (Washington, D.C., March 22-24, 1992).
Lieb, Barbara, Comp.
In the spirit of education reform, American education is challenged as never before to meet higher standards of teaching and learning. In order to respond to these challenges, the Office of Educational Research and Improvement convened a study group representing a cross section of individuals and organizations interested in the education of teachers. Ideas and recommendations discussed by the study group centered around six issues: (1) the kind of teaching needed to achieve world class standards; (2) problems in educating teachers for world class standards; (3) teacher education issues specific to core subject areas; (4) needed changes in policies and practices in educating teachers; (5) the potential of current reforms to facilitate needed changes; and (6) recommendations for educating teachers for world class standards. This report includes the following presentations: "What Kind of Teaching Do We Need for World Class Standards?""What Problems Must be Solved in Educating Teachers for World Class Standards? "How Will Changes in the Core Subject Areas Affect the Education of Teachers?""What Changes Are Needed in Policies and Practices That Affect the Education of Teachers?" and "Will Current Reforms Contribute to the Changes Needed?" Two appendices provide a meeting agenda and a list of speakers and participants. (LL)
