Summary

The reviewer faults the author for "simple and uncritical presentations of ideas" that fail to result in the promised "workable document for practicing teacher educators to use." the material "shows so complete a lack of concern for such matters as whether a model has or has not been derived from empirical research, whether the model has or has not demonstrated utility, or whether the model is just a happy whim or has a more solid foundation." for the work of B. Othanel smith, hilda taba, N.l. Gage, ned flanders, arno bellack, J.w. Getzels, harry broudy, Albert hickey, James gallagher, J. Richard suchman, asahel woodruff, david krathwohl, and elizabeth maccia, the reviewer offers brief evaluative characterizations, using the criteria that the author should have employed but did not. While the verduin book might be expected to "stimulate discussion of what should be included in the teacher education curriculum," the reviewer suggests that one might look in the direction of the work of such persons as thorndike, piaget, hebb, skinner, and bruner as more fruitful sources of educational ideas and practices. While the research on teaching in the classroom should not be abandoned, "its usefulness as a basis for anything except further research will be questioned by anyone who examines closely the outcomes presented in research reports."
