Restructuring Courses in Higher Education to Model Constructivist Practice.
Buchanan, Teresa K.; Smith, R. Michael
Action in Teacher Education, v20 n3 p62-72 Fall 1998
Presents a four-phase model that could help infuse constructivist practice into preservice teacher education courses. The phases include engagement (grounding the course in students' beliefs and experiences), connection (developing students' expertise for resolving later ambiguities), application (applying students' reconstructed understanding of the main concept to important current issues), and culmination (consolidating course material in a final project).
