Teacher Education As an All Community Responsibility: A Proposal for Restructuring California Teacher Education.
Ramage, Jean, Ed.
This report charts a vision for preparing California teachers for the 21st century. The report is an adaptation of the national framework found in the Association of Teacher Educators' report, "Restructuring the Education of Teachers." Recognizing that learning to be an effective teacher is a developmental process, the report is organized around the following professional development continuum areas: (1) improving recruitment, selection, and support; (2) strengthening initial teacher preparation; (3) facilitating successful entry into the profession; (4) increasing the capacity for continuing professional development; and (5) expanding and employing the research base and achieving accountability. For each professional development area, the report outlines a goal, issues, and initial actions. A prologue identifies the challenging context in which restructuring teacher education must take place and reviews curricular reforms. (JDD)
