Myths in Teacher Education: Towards Reflectivity.
Tochon, Francois Victor
Pedagogy, Culture & Society, v7 n2 p257-89 1999
Discusses three trends in teacher education: mastery learning; strategic teaching; and narrative awakening, analyzing them by deconstructing their discourse and looking for inner contradictions. The article explains how mass educational concepts, even positive ones, can stifle individual growth, responsibility, and difference, and it discusses the future of reflective trends in teacher education.
