True Teaching Expertise: The Weaving Together of Theory and Practice
Mascio, Bryan
American Educator, v40 n2 p18-21 Sum 2016
How do we strengthen the teaching profession? This question weighs on many educators, researchers, politicians, and parents. The public discourse around teaching often feels very negative; it does not clearly define teaching expertise, but it does reflect a very clear belief that many teachers just do not have it. In this article, a former classroom teacher offers this compelling answer to the question of how to strengthen the teaching profession: prepare teachers with clinical expertise that mixes theory and practice and empowers them to make the best decisions possible.
