Models of Teacher Education: Where Reading Recovery Teacher[R] Training Fits.
Network News, p1-4 Fall 1997
The purpose of this paper is to examine Reading Recovery training in relation to three models for teaching and learning: instructor-centered, student-centered, and community-centered. Typically, the theories on which these models are based have been used to predict how children learn and how they should be taught. However, the theories and consequent models can also be applied to predict teacher learning and education. The original design of the Reading Recovery training program closely follows the principles of a community-centered model of teacher education. By making explicit the implications of this model, in contrast to the other two models, Reading Recovery teacher leaders and trainers can better understand, plan for, and evaluate Reading Recovery training practices. Contains 10 references and a figure illustrating aspects of models for teaching and learning applied to teacher educators. (RS)
