Strengthening Clinical Preparation: The Holy Grail of Teacher Education
Darling-Hammond, Linda
Peabody Journal of Education, v89 n4 p547-561 2014
Efforts to improve teacher education have recently focused in on the importance of well-supervised clinical practice as a critical element of effective preparation. This article outlines the challenges to creating productive clinical experiences for prospective teachers, and identifies strategies that have been found successful in confronting these challenges. These include the development of professional development school relationships that strengthen practice in partner schools and the use of teacher performance assessments that focus attention on pulling together practical skills and providing feedback to candidates and programs.
