Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine the development of teacher training in Newfoundland's educational history from its early beginnings to the Commission of Government years. Changes in the method of training teachers in Newfoundland have been mainly the result of attempts to improve the school system. Furthermore, the development of education in Newfoundland has been considerably different from the pattern found elsewhere in British North America. A number of factors which have contributed to the uniqueness of the education system in the Colony are examined in the thesis. -- In addition, the study outlines the type of training which teachers received from the early 1800's to the 1940's. This training changed as a result of a number of key developments, including the existence of church-based societies, the passage of educational legislation, the creation of the Council of Higher Education, the establishment of the Normal School, and the study of the educational system under the Commission of Government in Newfoundland.
