Transcript Dean Robert Howsam talks over the plans for a new education building, top. Above, Dud Fagan, student teacher, works with an industrial arts student. He must plan and supervise all the drafting and woodwork procedures for the classes he teaches three and a half hours daily. An elementary education major asks her nursery school children to identify objects from a hook, below. The nursery school is used for practicing teaching techniques and gaining confidence among students. Prospective teachers such as Shirley de Fries, chemistry major, must not only maintain good grades in their field but must also have a practical, working knowledge of how to conduct experiments. Teacher Training With the scheduling of the two basic teacher education classes consecutively for a two hour period, the College of Education attempted to provide a more concentrated, effective learning atmosphere for future teachers. Realizing that practical experience is the key to successful teaching, the college considered the need for working laboratories in its design of the new Education Building which will be completed in 1969. Dean Robert Howsam pointed out that the individualistic approach to Emphasizes Classroom Experience education will be reflected throughout the three story structure. Specialized study fields such as the social sciences will be concentrated on one particular floor. A Clinical Education Center will be housed on the first floor of the building. In this center, students will observe professional guidance counseling through special one-way mirrors. This type of laboratory observation will guarantee that the development of the exceptional child remains undisturbed. Last year, the College began a practice of taping student teachers while they conducted classes in Houston area schools. This allowed the practice teacher to see himself through the eyes of a classroom observer. For the first time, the school required beginning education students to observe classroom situations once a week. Through such a program the education major can become acquainted with the responsibilities and problems of teaching early in his training. 306 307
