The increasing racial and ethnic diversity of classrooms in the United States presents a significant challenge to the next generation of teachers and to those responsible for their training.

Knowledge base for the beginning teacher by Maynard C Reynolds( Book )

11 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During 1987 and 1988, a Knowledge Base Action Group appointed through the Center for Change in Teacher Education sponsored a series of leadership workshops in various regions of the country on institutional change processes and ways to use the knowledge bases in designing teacher preparation programs. The major work of the group was to assemble a set of juried statements prepared by leading figures in various fields of education to reflect the knowledge needed by professionally responsible beginning teachers. In this context, a detailed study was conducted of beliefs about the knowledge bases for teacher education in four separate settings. The aim was to secure data for use in action group planning and development activities. This report provides preliminary findings from these surveys. Three of the surveys were conducted in connection with workshops devoted to a consideration of the knowledge bases for teacher education. The fourth survey was conducted within one large university faculty group, using a mailed questionnaire. A copy of the questionnaire is appended as well as tables displaying summaries of questionnaire results. (Jd)

Multicultural education through competency-based teacher education by William A., Ed Hunter( Book )

5 editions published in 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication is the result of a Multicultural Education/Competency Based Teacher Education (m/cbte) project which, among other objectives, sought to bring together the findings of separate studies, projects, and research efforts. The project proposed to take a broader approach to the overall problem of quality education by seeking to identify generic concerns and needs common to all ethnic groups and diverse cultural situations. The project at the same time sought to identify those needs felt to be unique or more relevant to certain cultural circumstances and situations than others. Part 1 of this document is in the form of a prologue; it is entitled "Antecedents to Developments of and Emphasis on Multicultural Education." Parts 2-5 were written by four educators and/or teams from the black American, Spanish-speaking American, and native American academic communities who were invited to contribute. Part 2 treats teacher competencies from the perspective of the black American educator. Part 3 treats teacher competencies from the Spanish-speaking educator's perspective (including views of Puerto Rican Americans, Chicano Americans, and Cuban Americans). Part 4 treats teacher competencies from the perspective of the native American, recognizing the divergencies of views among the nearly 300 tribal groups. Part 5 seeks to identify teacher competencies common to all groups as well as those recognized in the general society as evidence of accepted requirements and standards. (Editor/JA)

Partnering to prepare urban teachers : a call to activism by Francine P Peterman( )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The research presented is situated in urban settings that mirror those across the United States and represents partnerships in Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Los Angeles, and Wilmington, where school, city, and teacher education communities collaborate to prepare and keep teachers in hard-to-staff, high-needs schools, Case studies included in the text explore multiple perspectives on partnering to prepare urban teachers - including those of urban schoolchildren and their teachers, teacher educators and teachers becoming teacher educators, and parents. Combined, the chapters theoretically and practically detail the layers and conundrums, tribulations and triumphs, contexts and voices of the challenges facing urban teachers, teacher educators, community members, and administrators who work collaboratively to prepare and support teachers as social activists."--Jacket

Partnership in teacher education by American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education( Book )

8 editions published between 1967 and 1968 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication is designed to serve 3 purposes: (1) It is a report of the 1966 Summer Workshop-Symposium on "School-College Partnerships in Teacher Education," cosponsored by the publishers, (2) It presents additional thinking not included in that program or which has come to light since, and (3) It serves as a follow-up to 1964 and 1965 studies as third in a series devoted to helping those interested in teacher education to stay abreast of changes and to be prepared to exercise enlightened leadership. Most of the 34 contributors are university-based administrators of teacher education programs. Section 1 provides brief reflections on the workshop-symposium, and Section 2 presents much of the conference content: a chapter on promises and pitfalls in the trend toward collaboration; descriptions and analyses of emerging partnerships in teacher education; a review of group discussions at the conference; and elaborations on 7 issues and problems in cooperative venturing. Section 3 focuses on emerging administrative and regulatory developments in collaborative enterprises. Section 4 deals with the foundations for partnership in the philosophical bases of teacher education. Various innovative procedures and practices in supervision, such as microteaching, simulation training, and pre-student teaching laboratories, are discussed in the 12 parts of Section 5. A final section offers "A Look at the Future." (JS)

The speeches range in approach from enumerating the essentials of teaching to awakening the audience to the high priority of education in Africa. Topics which recur through the speeches also include: cooperation between public schools and colleges and among departments within a college, individualized education (for students, teacher trainees, and inservice teachers), definitions and roles of scholarship and leadership, teacher sensitivity, educational technology, professional training, and the role of research. Biographical data for each speaker is included. (LP)

Teacher education and the Agency for International Development by Louis W Normington( Book )

2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reports a research project which had two major functions: (1) to describe the extent of aid (Agency for International Development) involvement in teacher education and (2) to see if generalizations could be extracted which might be useful as guidelines to aid or other institutions participating in similar future projects. The report, which is based on four major sources of information (reports in aid files, some field investigations of overseas projects, interviews with aid officials and university personnel, and studies conducted by other investigators), contains four chapters. Chapter 1 discusses the critical need for teacher education in the developing countries. Chapter 2 describes the scope of the technical assistance program with information on the number of projects, countries involved, types of contractors, and major types of assistance. Projects operational in 1967 are described briefly by country in the four regions: Far East, Near East and South Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Chapter 3 includes an analysis of observable trends, isolating the factors which appear to underlie success or failure, and a presentation of 21 recommendations regarding overall strategy and the planning and carrying out of individual projects. Chapter 4 describes 39 projects in more detail (objectives, major activities, etc.) to illustrate the variety, diversity, and range of the assistance programs. Appendixes include a bibliography and list of people consulted. (Js)

Performance-based teacher education : what is the state of the art? by Stanley Munson Elam( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document clarifies the concepts of Performance Based Teacher Education, examines their potential, and identifies problems and questions. Five essential elements are identified: 1) teaching competencies to be demonstrated are role-derived, specified in behavioral terms, and made public; 2) assessment criteria are competency-based, specify mastery levels, and are made public; 3) assessment requires performance as prime evidence and takes student knowledge into account; 4) the student's rate of progress depends on demonstrated competency; and 5) the instructional program facilitates development and evaluation of specific competencies. Characteristics include program individualization and modularization; emphasis on exit rather than entrance requirements; the systemic, open approach, with feedback loops and program alternatives; and student and program accountability. The advantages of PBTE are identified and include the attention to individual abilities and needs, the focus on objectives, the emphasis on the sharing process by which these objectives are formulated and used as the basis of evaluation, and efficiency
