The Ohio Transfer Articulation Guide: An Ethics Case Study for Social Foundations of Education Faculty
Abowitz, Kathleen Knight
Philosophical Studies in Education, v37 p117-126 2006
In 2004, the Ohio Transfer Articulation Guide (TAG) for Education set forth the Professional Education Module to serve as the foundation for preparation into all licensure areas for teachers. A TAG is a transfer module or set of courses approved by the Ohio Board of Regents that provides a standard set of general education courses (such as English Composition, mathematics, arts/humanities, and social and behavior sciences) in selected academic disciplines. TAG modules provide guaranteed paths of transfer between two year and four year institutions of higher education, and have been around at least a decade in Ohio. Reviewed and endorsed by a faculty panel of more than 30 members, as well as the State University Education Deans council, the Education TAG is a set of four teacher education courses: Introduction to Education, Educational Psychology, Introduction to Exceptionalities, and Educational Technology. This essay describes the author's integration of the TAG required Introduction to Education course in the pre-existing Socio-Cultural Foundations of Education course she taught prior to the new standards set forth by the Ohio Board of Regents.
