Teacher Preparation: A Team Approach.
De Lorenzo, William E.; And Others
A model of preservice teacher education for second language instruction that (1) emphasizes the relationship between theory and practice in the classroom and (2) brings practicing elementary and secondary school teachers and teacher educators together to train new teachers is presented. The program is implemented in three coordinated courses at the University of Maryland, College Park. Components of the model and of the course sequence are outlined here, including: a list of program features and expectations; lists of sample student activities to fulfill course objectives; descriptions of student portfolio content requirements; objectives and expectations of the student teacher/teacher educator relationship; notes of elements of effective teaching and classroom interaction; and a motivational note to new teachers. Appended materials include a photocopied article on reforming teacher education and sample certificates for completion of the program. Contains 14 references. (MSE)
