Our Focus on Teaching Needs a Wide-Angle Lens: Consider Extra-School Teaching. Teacher Education Forum; Volume 4, Number 10.
Duke, Daniel L.
Today educators are finding the public turning in greater numbers to alternative forms of instruction, including Transcendental Meditation, apprenticeship, and consciousness-raising groups. This paper attempts to (1) map out the "universe" of instruction, going beyond the frontier of public elementary and secondary teaching to consider other variants and (2) to investigate the desirability of including examples of "extra school" teaching in the preservice and inservice education of teachers. The discussion offers an analysis of what qualifies as teaching; types of teaching including ten general classifications, their primary function, and examples of each. A brief review of one example of extra school teaching--teaching archery, Zen style--is presented to illustrate the potential value to teachers in training of a broadened perspective on teaching. Eight categories of teaching in public schools that would be improved by the consideration of "extra school" teaching are presented as illustration. (JMF)
