A Preliminary Model of Pre-Service Teacher Education as the Preparation of Professional Artists.
Reitman, Sanford W.
A model is presented for preparing teachers as "artists of the classroom" in centers referred to as "institutes of the teaching arts." In the model, the development of four fundamental qualities in all preservice students of the teaching arts are stressed: (1) a pridefully creative outlook on the work of teaching; (2) an understanding of the social, historical, philosophical, and psychological foundations of education undergirding artistically creative endeavor in learning environments; (3) a sophisticated working knowledge of the technology of the craft of teaching; and (4) a personal style of artistic performance in the classroom. Each of these qualities to be developed and honed is discussed in light of a suggested sequential program of professional preparation fluidly combining study of educational theory and technology with clinical and practicum applications. Some novel yet highly practicable strategies for preparing pedagogical artists are presented. Such strategies are consistent with recent theoretical and empirical work on teacher education from alternative perspectives as well as with the original conceptual model proposed. (JD)
