Teacher Education Fifth-Year Programs: A Selected Bibliography. Bulletin, 1959, No. 9

In recent years, fifth-year programs in teacher education have developed rapidly, especially for the graduates of liberal arts colleges who lack the professional requirements for a teaching certificate. Several States now require a fifth year of college work in granting a standard certificate for secondary school training in the academic fields, and two States have this requirement for elementary school teaching. In addition, some colleges and universities have recognized that their graduate programs were not adequately meeting the needs of the classroom teacher and consequently have reorganized their master's programs; others have expanded 4-year programs to included a fifth year. This bibliography has been prepared for members of the teaching profession whose primary concern is teacher education. Reflecting a trend toward a fifth year of teacher preparation, these selected references include exploratory suggestions and opinions, proposals and studies relative to the content and requirements of fifth-year and five-year programs of teacher education, and descriptions of current practices. The references are arranged alphabetically by author and are indexed by subject and author. It is hoped that graduate students of education will also find it useful. An index is included.
