Guiding Teacher Learning: Insider Studies of Classroom-Based Work with Teachers. Craft Paper 94-1.
Feiman-Nemser, Sharon; And Others
This collection of papers focuses on guided practice as a face-to-face professional activity directed toward helping teachers learn to teach and learn from teaching. The first paper, "Guided Learning from Teaching: A Fresh Look at a Familiar Practice" by Sharon Feiman-Nemser and Cheryl Rosaen, provides a conceptual framework of guided practice, shows how the framework can be used for analyzing and comparing different traditions of guided practice, and describes how doctoral students were assisted in constructing a normative stance to use in appraising particular instances of guided practice. The papers that follow apply the framework to the study of particular instances of guided practice work with prospective and practicing teachers. The papers include: "Dilemmas of a Field Instructor: A Search for Common Ground" (Jaime Grinberg and others); "Louise and Me: An Analysis of a Field Instructor's Construction of Guided Practice" (Sharon A. Schwille); "Constructing a Practice: How an Educational Vision Shapes the Work of a Field Instructor and Her Teacher Candidates" (Jenny Denyer); and "Learning with Experience" (Nancy Jennings and others). Each paper highlights issues, dilemmas, and tensions that emerged from careful study of one guided practice episode. (Each paper contains references.) (JDD)
