Teacher Development Outside the United States. A Selected Annotated Bibliography. Recent Works Collected by the Office of Research, U.S. Department of Education.
Maline, Mindi Barth, Comp.
The purposes of this U.S. Department of Education project were twofold: (1) to explore the process for obtaining materials, documents, and publications from abroad that were "fugitive" in nature (i.e., documents not typically found in the ERIC system or library collections); and (2) to develop a database of both the materials collected and the people contacted or identified as having expertise in teacher training. The search yielded materials, mostly in English, from more than 38 countries. This annotated bibliography contains a selection of the English language materials collected, along with several ERIC documents and journal articles. The entries vary from general descriptions of teacher training programs and requirements to proposed reform strategies. Also included are many studies of student teacher experiences, training effectiveness, and specific activities such as practicum experiences and distance learning. (LL)
