Teaching as Inquiry: Contexts That Empower.
Andrews, Sharon Vincz
A discussion is presented of a semester-long collaborative project in whole language at the college level. Eight preservice teachers, seven inservice teachers, a school principal, and a university instructor worked together in Friday afternoon seminars. This paper gives an overview of multiple theoretical foundations: learning theory, critical theory, and language theory to support the curriculum development of this university course in language arts methods and describes an inquiry methodology which parallels the curriculum development and data collection points which are also curriculum events. The document includes the course syllabus, calendar, and bibliography of background materials. (Author)
