Modeling Collaboration in Curriculum Integration: Retired Teachers' Tea.
Brunelle, Val; Young, Barbara
This paper contains materials and describes a project that allowed teacher educators to model collaborative, integrated curriculum for preservice teachers by holding a retired teachers' tea. The preservice teachers were from a secondary English methods course and an elementary Social Studies methods class. While honoring retired teachers, preservice teachers would interview the guests and seek first-hand knowledge of these teachers' contributions to education through data gathered during the interviews. As a result, the language arts and social studies methods classes were united in creating oral history. Examples of related materials to assist in organizing the activity are attached, including invitation form letter, forms for students, interview checklists, thank-you form letter, guidelines for oral history interviewing, interview guide, and oral history data sheet. (Contains 34 references.) (JB)
