Summary

This paper reviews a limited number of the more conspicuous efforts and proposals for improving teacher education which were reported in the 1960's. The first sections summarize two representative plans for the general education requirements for teachers and enumerate the kinds of innovations in higher education as a whole (as summarized in the literature) which affect the total university curriculum. A section reviewing several of the more prominent attempts to analyze and suggest improvements in the professional education of teachers includes discussion of Stanford University experiments, new instructional media in teacher education, the use of conceptual systems of teaching, alternatives to conventional student teaching, use of auxiliary personnel, and preparation of teachers for the inner city. Concluding sections present "some precautions regarding innovations" and "recommendations" for action by individual colleges and universities of the State of Illinois. The recommendations are categorized under six general needs: for carefully organized experimentation in teacher education programs, for alternatives to conventional student teaching programs, for programs to prepare teachers of disadvantaged children and youth, for collegiate involvement in inservice programs for teachers, for using teacher aides in the schools, and for recruitment of capable students into teaching. Included is a 21-item bibliography. (JS)
