Enhancing Canadian Teacher Education Using a Story Framework
Drake, Susan M.
Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v1 n2 Article 2 2010
The "Accord on Initial Teacher Education" was created by the Canadian Deans of Education in 2006 to guide teacher educators across Canada. The "Story Model" (Drake et al., 1992) is aligned with the principles in the Accord and has proven useful in teacher education. Here it is explored as a framework for curriculum development and as an instructional strategy for students to analyze complex educational issues. This framework uses an inside-outside/past-future approach to analyze current issues and includes personal, cultural and global perspectives. Literacy and emerging new literacies are explored within the framework, as well as traditional assessment and assessment for and as learning. The "Story Model" looks toward creating a dynamic pan-Canadian "new story" in teacher education.
