Deeply Rooted Change: A Tale of Learning To Teach Adventurously. Elementary Subjects Center Series No. 59.
Wilson, Suzanne M.; And Others
This report describes the collaboration of a teacher educator at Michigan State University and two experienced elementary school teachers who spent 3 years team teaching an integrated curriculum that they developed for their third grade students. Four themes are most indicative of the teachers' experiences with the difficulties and rewards of learning to teach in innovative ways: courage, communication, trust, and time. These themes serve as focal points in a discussion and analysis of the personal and organizational resources that affect when and how teachers learn to teach. (MM)
