The Master's Degree in Education as Teacher Professional Development: Re-Envisioning the Role of the Academy in the Development of Practicing Teachers
Galluzzo, Gary; Isenberg, Joan P.; White, Stephen C.; Fox, Rebecca K.
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc.
Teacher education is under more scrutiny than ever as standards-based education is becoming more and more the norm. Although much literature is available that addresses developing teacher education, no one addresses how to create and develop a master's level program. Gary R. Galluzzo, Joan Packer Isenberg, C. Stephen White, and Rebecca K. Fox, professors at the highly regarded Graduate School of Education at George Mason University, present a text to help deans and other professionals develop a master's level degree program that meets the standards of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. The various sections explain in depth the facets of the program's design, including how to qualify future students answering the call by the National Board, provide researched evidence around Advanced Studies in Teaching and Learning, and lastly, explore what will become the new standards of accountability for teacher education. Using their own experience as they reconceived their own program for a master's degree for practicing teachers, the authors provide first-hand accounts of their own expectations, outcomes, and continual dilemmas to inspire more discussion how teacher education can improve the quality of teaching in America's schools. This book is divided into three parts: Part I. Tenets of Program Design; Part II. Evidence of Effectiveness; and Part III. New Discourses. Appended are: (1) ASTL Framework of Outcomes, Courses, Performance-Based Assessments, and NBPTSRelated Assessment Activities; (2) Rubric for Multigenre Assignment; (3) Rubric for Integrative Case Study; (4) ASTL Core Self-Assessment Questionnaire; (5) Rubric for Culturally Focused Action Research Study; and (6) The ASTL Professional Portfolio.
