Teaching for Diversity: Models for Expanding the Supply of Minority Teachers. A Policy Issue Perspective.
Villegas, Ana Maria; And Others
This collection is based on two studies of approaches to increasing the supply of minority teachers. The first was a documentation study of programs supported by the Ford Foundation Minority Education Demonstration Project designed to attract minority candidates, prepare them well, and present model programs. The second study described a range of innovative programs to recruit or prepare large numbers of minority teachers. The following papers are included: (1) "Restructuring Teacher Education for Diversity: The Innovative Curriculum" (Ana Maria Villegas); (2) "Reaching Out to Schools" (Beatriz Chu Clewell); (3) "Creating a Path between Two- and Four-Year Colleges" (Bernice Taylor Anderson and Margaret E. Goertz); (4) "Bringing Teacher Assistants into Teacher Education Programs" (Myra Ficklen Joy and Barbara A. Bruschi); and (5) "Discussion Remarks on Teacher Diversity" (Jacqueline Jordan Irvine). An appendix contains site descriptions for programs described in Chapter 1. (Chapter 1 contains 56 references, and Chapter 5 contains 5.) (SLD)
