Analysis and Practices of Teaching: Desciption of a Course.
Etheridge, Carol Plata; And Others
An introductory teacher preparation course based on Adler's Paideia concepts was examined for documentation of course content, purposes, and student reactions. Data were collected through ethnographic observations of course classes, interviews with students and professors, and examination of readings for the course. The course, "Analysis and Practices of Teaching," was team-taught by two professors to 25 graduate students beginning a 15-month Master of Arts in Teaching program for certification as secondary teachers. The course schedule included lectures, seminars, and videotaped microteaching sessions. Diverse teaching strategies were explored as the Tennessee Instructional Model (TIM) and Mortimer Adler's Paideia concepts were scrutinized and practiced. Analysis and evaluation of learning and performance were achieved through joint efforts of the professors and students. (Author)
