A Look at a Seminar in Individualized Instruction: Extending Tutoring To Develop a Meaningful Field Experience Prior to Student Learning.
What are some of the things we can do to create meaningful field experiences prior to student teaching? An attempt to cater to career-changers with day jobs led to the creation of a small tutor seminar group. The students tutored secondary mathematics students, met monthly as a group, and communicated with the instructor weekly through e-mail. Individualized assessment, lesson planning, instructional strategies and reflective journals helped students to explore how individualized instruction can inform classroom teaching. In this session, the course objectives and methods will be briefly discussed, and sample work and reflections of the tutor participants will be examined. This will lead the session's participants into a discussion of what creates a meaningful field experience, and what we can do to provide more of them for a wide range of student needs. (Author)
