Preservice Teacher Education Framework.
Berns, Robert G.
A project created a framework for integrating school-to-work (STW) into the preservice curriculum for all new teachers in Ohio and conducted a professional development activity for college and university faculty involved with preparation of new teachers. A work team of teacher education faculty representing six public universities met to learn about STW, discuss its implications, and design a teacher education framework and professional development activity for teacher educators. The framework consisted of the following elements: a vision of STW and teacher preparation; philosophy; set of economic assumptions; mission and definition of STW and preservice teacher educator's role; relevant concept maps; list of outcomes for preservice teacher education programs related to STW; relationship of STW and state curriculum models; relationship of STW and new Ohio teacher education and licensure programs; plan for integrating STW into all preservice teacher education programs in Ohio; list of possible barriers for implementation; time-line; and list of references. For the professional development activity, a prototype conference for teacher education faculty was planned and implemented. The event allowed participants to experience presentations, a simulation that included workshops by educators and business people involved with STW, 1-day externship at a work site, and force field analysis activity. (These products are included in the report: framework, conference materials, university plans, and conference assessment.) (YLB)
