Integrated Model of Teacher Preparation: An Alternate Representation
Gafoor K., Abdul
Online Submission, Paper presented at the International Conference on Learning Community for Global Education Reform (Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, India, Nov 18-20, 2011)
The paper proposes an integrated model of pre-service preparation of teachers by incorporating the principles of critical and constructive approach to teacher education. The paper is an attempt to share the draft of the model with the national audience of teacher educators. The model proposed is integrated, among other things, in that in addition to the impact of teacher education on the behavior of teachers in classrooms the cognitive, moral, and ethical aspects of teacher and their connection with policy levers such as teacher evaluation and course requirements are incorporated. This alternative orientation to teacher education, the author hopes, will help create discussion about ways to meet the age old conflicts in teacher preparation like those between theory and practice and those between liberal and technical nature, and that between more school experience and more academic content courses. The paper is an attempt to share the draft of the model with the national audience of teacher educators.
