Learning from the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute: Documenting Teacher Development.
Gregg, Madeleine; Leinhardt, Gaea
American Educational Research Journal, v39 n2 p553-87 Sum 2002
Studied the extent to which experiences designed to help preservice teachers take advantage of the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute moved them to acquire deeper knowledge of the Civil Rights Movement. Preservice teachers were from teacher education programs that differed with respect to situated activity, discourse communities, and authentic practice. Differences in the information gained by the two groups support teacher education frameworks that build from the "community of learners" model. (SLD)
