Summary

This report contains addresses and symposium discussions presented at the conference on teacher competence for the middle school years (fifth or sixth through eighth grades) which was attended by about 100 educators for various levels and positions. The foreword lists three questions posed by emergence of the middle school movement which the conferenc e focused on: Are there some teaching strategies and staff utilization patterns which hold promise for improving education in the middle school years? Are there special competencies needed by teachers who would work with middle school students? If so, can better programs be provided for preparation of such teachers? A six-member symposium discussion follows each of five groups of presentations: 1) "The Special Case of Early Adolescents" by Samuel H. Popper and "Teachers for the Middle Schools" by William W. Wattenberg; 2) "Learning Through Discovery in the Fifth Grade" by R. E. Meyers and "Teaching Thinking on the Synthesis Level" by Burton L. Grover; 3) "What a Middle School Might Be Like" by William Alexander" 4) "Establishing Objectives for Individualized Instruction" by John Downs, "Team Teaching in the Block-Time Class" by Lloyd Johansen, and "Flexible Scheduling for the Middle School Years: The Fluid Block Plan" by Almon Hoye; 5) "Preparing Teachers for the Middle School Years" by Emmett L. Williams. The director's conference summary and selected participant evaluation comments are also included. (JS)
