The Infusion of Foundational Components into Pre-service Teacher Preparation Programs.
Cole, Donna J.; McCormick, Theresa
Most preservice teacher preparation schools include a tripartite set of courses--Foundations, Methods, and Practica. Since many Foundations educators currently are required to teach non-Foundations couses, they are in a situation to infuse many of the concepts and concentration areas of Foundations content into methodological and practicum coursework. Two case studies are presented which illustrate how Foundations content may be infused into other courses. The first concerns a small liberal arts university in which the Foundations faculty member used a Foundational approach to develop the Science and Social Studies methods courses. The second case study offers information on the integration of Foundations concepts into the secondary teacher education curriculum at a large land grant university. (JD)
