Preservice Clinical Experiences: A Bridge for Teachers and Students.
Ruediger, Greg; Lorance, Anne
This article describes a university teacher training program for preservice teachers of students with mental retardation that emphasizes adult learning theory, case method teaching, communication, and clinical experiences to bridge research and practice. A review of the literature examines adult learning theory, Bloom's Taxonomy of Educational Objectives, case method teaching, and clinical experiences. The following section describes a teacher training program based on these principles and includes four clinical experiences. Appendices include: (1) an application of Bloom's Taxonomy to the proposed curriculum; (2) an interaction analysis activity for students observing a classroom; (3) a sample case study; and (4) a guide to self-evaluation following simulations and microteaching activities. (Contains 21 references.) (DB)
