Description of Lecture

According to national statistics, we are losing 22 percent of our teachers in the first three years (U.S. Department of Education, 2004), and 50 percent after five years (National Education Association, 2003). In recent years, the debate over teacher quality and preparation has gained new urgency. We will need to recruit, train, hire, and retain more than two million teachers over the coming decade. This informative session will share the findings of a middle education college instructor who disigned a survey to collect suggestions for improving the content and experiences for a required curriculum and methods undergradute course for pre-service teachers. The survey indicated that teachers knew specifically whaty behaviors and content-based concepts and ideas novice teachers needed to become effective in their schools.
