Instructional Cases for Preservice and Student Teachers. Case Studies for Teacher Training and Educational Leadership.
Foucar-Szocki, Diane, Ed.
This volume contains nine case studies that focus on preservice teaching and multicultural education and four case studies on educational change, collaboration and reform for teacher training, and educational leadership. These cases are presented, followed by an introduction to conducting case study discussions, and then by discussion guides for each case. The first four cases address the following concerns: professional behavior; disillusionment about teaching; pedagogical conflict involving regular teacher, preservice teacher, student, and parent; and a controversial cooperating teacher. Case 5 deals with ethical, legal, and professional responsibilities of preservice teachers. Cases 5-9 address issues around multicultural education and present experiences of teachers and student teachers working with cultural diversity in the schools. An appendix contains a case response form. The second part of the volume presents the four change and leadership cases. The first describes the State of Virginia's attempt to articulate an outcomes-based framework for education. The second documents the process of change at the district level. The third looks at learning disabilities in adulthood. The fourth records a collaborative effort between parents, teachers, administrators, and a teacher training institution to establish a math lab in a local elementary school. Each case is followed by suggestions for discussion; appendixes to the cases contain sample materials. Several cases contain references. (JB)
