Practice Makes Practice, or Does It? The Relationship between Theory and Practice in Teacher Education (An Educology of Teacher Education)
Harste, Jerome C.; Leland, Christine; Schmidt, Kristina; Vasquez, Vivian; Ociepka, Anne
Online Submission, International Journal of Educology v16 n2 p116-191 2002
One of the problems in re-imagining the educology of teacher education lies in how we talk about theory and practice. Often theory and practice are spoken about as if they are opposites of each other, and sometimes they are--in the sense that each has to compete with the other in terms of time. Even when there is general agreement that both theory and practice are necessary, someone will inevitably ask: But really, how important is theory? What contribution to teacher preparation do field experiences make? If forced by time constraints to make a choice, how much of one or the other is enough? (Contains 8 figures.)
