Constructing a New Model for Teacher Preparation: A Collaborative Approach
Cramer, Elizabeth D.; Alvarez McHatton, Patricia; Little, Mary E.
Action in Teacher Education, v37 n3 p238-250 2015
Legislative changes over the past several decades have led to an increase of students with disabilities in general education classrooms. Although teacher preparation has changed to include more content about diversity and disability, student achievement data suggest that though students with disabilities have been physically included in classrooms, teachers may not be prepared to provide access to content for these learners. The authors argue for a shift in teacher preparation to a more collaborative approach beginning with ourselves as teacher educators. A framework for increased and purposeful collaboration across stakeholders is provided that incorporates context, self-assessment, a critical review of collaborative efforts, action planning, and evaluation.
