58 調査・実践報告 ニュージーランドの教職課程の訪問調査報告Findings from a New Zealand Teacher Education Program Survey and Review of Teacher Education Literature小野田 榮1)* 宮下  治2) 吉野 康子3)Sakae ONODA1)* Osamu MIYASHITA2) Yasuko YOSHINO3)Abstract This paper reports a survey conducted in a university in New Zealand and a review of teacher education literature identifying potential renovations to the current English Teacher Education Program in the Faculty of International Liberal Arts at a private A Uni-versity, Japan. Many Japanese universities offer undergraduate English teacher education programs under the supervision of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology (MEXT). However, such programs have not always resulted in produc-ing secondary school English teachers with adequate teaching skills, a disposition and passion for teaching, or adequate English proficiency. Various reasons for this shortcom-ing have been offered along with suggestions for improvements. Based on these, we sought to make the A University program more effective in producing secondary school English teachers equipped with the above qualities and skills. Based on the data collected, we judged that the following may be effective for course renovation: (1) longer teaching practice beginning earlier in university life, including one day a week when student teachers return to their classrooms and discuss, critique, and im-prove their teaching with the help of their mentors; (2) teaching second language acquisi-tion theory intimately integrated with teaching methodology classes and teaching practice; and (3) courses such as the Diploma or Masters programs implemented in New Zealand should be encouraged or even made mandatory to develop effective teaching skills. We trust that our suggested reformulations will be received positively by our students even before they become teachers as well as by the instructors who supervise them in their teaching practice and that they will offer a model for English teacher education pro-grams.順天堂グローバル教養論集 第二巻(2017)58–65頁1)順天堂大学・国際教養学部 (Email: s-onoda@juntendo.ac.jp)2)順天堂大学・国際教養学部 (Email: o-miyashita@juntendo.ac.jp)3)順天堂大学・国際教養学部 (Email: ya-yoshino@juntendo.ac.jp)*責任著者:小野田 榮 〔September 15, 2016 原稿受付〕〔January 23, 2017 掲載決定〕
