dc.description.abstract The purpose of the study was to develop an effective plan for teacher education in Thailand. Rationale for the study was based upon apparent existing weaknesses in the current program for teacher education in Thailand, with the assumption that a stronger teacher preparation program would produce a stronger educational system as a whole. Emphasis in development of the teacher preparation plan was directed toward making the plan attractive enough to insure consideration by Thai educational authorities.A review of related literature was conducted with emphasis on six- major areas believed to be significant to the construction of an effective teacher preparation program. The six major areas were:1. curricular content in teacher education;2. micro-teaching and laboratory experience in student teacher preparation;change;3. student teaching and student teacher attitude change4. supervision and supervisory roles in student teaching;5. evaluation procedures for student teacher performance; and6. in-service programs in teacher education.Each of the six major areas pertaining to the effectiveness of teacher preparation programs was examined for key concepts to provide direction for adequate change and growth in the area of teacher education in Thailand.Three major components in teacher education emerged from the six major areas examined in the related literature: general education, specialized education and professional education. Utilizing the review of the related literature coupled with observation of practices and experiences of the researcher while studying in the United States, a proposed plan for teacher preparation programs in Thailand was developed with an initial set of recommendations.In the proposed plan, the three major components in teacher education were programmed throughout all four years of undergraduate work with opportunity for further study during the fifth year. Throughout the total five year program, the time distribution of the three major components was proportionately proposed as twenty-eight percent for general education, fifty percent for specialized education, and twenty-two percent for professional education. Specific steps for implementation of the plan were recommended.The proposed plan for teacher preparation programs was designed to provide guidelines for teacher education institutions in Thailand. The proposed plan, if adopted for implementation in Thailand, is expected to lead to a more effective program for teacher preparation. en_US
