Steffy, Betty E., Ed.; Wolfe, Michael P, Ed.; Pasch, Suzanne H., Ed.; Enz, Billie J., Ed.
This book demonstrates how teachers and administrators can work collaboratively on maintaining continual growth, focusing on the Life Cycle of the Career Teacher Model, which crosses the continuum of practice from preservice preparation through professional development. Case studies illustrate the Reflection-Renewal-Growth Cycle Model in action. The book gives specific attention to the unique needs of each phase and makes recommendations on specific professional development practices. The eight chapters are (1) "The Model and Its Application" (Betty E. Steffy, Michael P. Wolfe, Suzanne H. Pasch, and Billie J. Enz); (2) "The Novice Teacher" (Michael J. Berson and Rick A. Breault); (3) "The Apprentice Teacher" (Mary C. Clement, Billie J. Enz, and George E. Pawlas); (4) "The Professional Teacher" (Polly Wolfe, Diane S. Murphy, Patricia H. Phelps, and Vincent R. McGrath); (5) "The Expert Teacher" (Jane S. Bray, Pamela A. Kramer, and Denise LePage); (6) "The Distinguished Teacher" (Billie J. Enz, Kathleen R. Weber, and Ruth D. Campopiano); (7) "The Emeritus Teacher" (Raymond J. Dagenais, Betty E. Steffy, and Billie J. Enz); and (8) "Applying the Life Cycle of the Career Teacher Model" (Suzanne H. Pasch, Michael P. Wolfe, Betty E. Steffy, and Billie J. Enz). The appendix is entitled "Addressing the Unique Needs of Each Phase Through Professional Development: Phase-Related Concerns and Recommended Professional-Development Practices."
