An Agenda for Improving Teacher Preparation in New York State: Knowledge Base and Programmatic Structure.
Bauer, Norman J.
This paper attempts to: (1) construct two intellectual categories within which emerging teacher education knowledge can be embedded; (2) develop a possible collegiate sequence, or a programmatic scheme, that incorporates this knowledge base in teacher preparation; and (3) generate from this knowledge base and programmatic scheme an initial agenda for policymakers in establishing the framework within which teacher preparation in New York might be systematically improved. The development of two categories, Educology and Pedagogy, is based on four assumptions involving: (1) knowledge not being pursued in teacher education programs; (2) differences between the discipline of education and other disciplines; (3) the need to revise the programmatic scheme of teacher education; and (4) the role of teacher educators and policymakers in pursuing knowledge to be incorporated into teacher education programs. These assumptions are discussed, and the development of the scheme is described. (CB)
