Ft-nd yours yj thit paper. ease goal of education By JUDE TURIC Herald Staff Writer Three important educational aveas for the teacher and the parent to attend to are the cognitive, the psycho - motor skills and the feelings of the student, according to Dr. Colin Thomson. While speaking at last evening's meeting of the Lethbridge Association of Home and School Councils, he stressed that teaching methods awl teachers were changing with the times. As an educationalist, Dr. Thomson added that the calibre of the teaching student and the teachtv in the school system, had "escalated beautifully, and I can see the results through the years,." "At the university level," he said, "we are aiming at greater specificity for the education graduate. "We want to get to a point where you (the parents) can come to us, and we (the educators) can show you exactly what competences the new teacher has. We're after skills and knowledge - instead of mere course-work." Dr. Thomson, a member of the faculty of education at the University of Lethbridge, explained that the aim is to "turn on, net out" a teacher. He said the effort was being made to get the "top breed of cat" in '' i teaching ranks, and the way to ensure top people in the school system, was to start right at the university level. "There has get to be a tight screening device." Dr. Thomson said, "to make the changes happen at our level. "We can't let every Tom, Dick and Harriet get in." He added that it was part of the parents' role to check on the competence of teacher-trainers, and if there was room for complaint, to do so. "But it also woi-ks the other way," said Dr. Thomson, "if you see something a student teacher is doing well, by all means, call up and say that too." He added that tbe hiring policies of school boards should also concern home and school groups. "You people must set the goal." Dr. Thomson said he would prefer to see differential, rather than generalized teaching take place starting in Grade 1. "We have it in the community college and the university, why not in the otter grades?" he asked. In conclusion, Dr._ Thomson said today's teaching techniques lend to the creation of excellent teachers, with "creativity, genuine effort and commitment."
