Responding to the Technicist Challenge to Practical Wisdom in Teaching: The Case of the INTASC Standards.
Hostetler, Karl D.
Educational Foundations, v16 n3 p45-64 Spr 2002
Explores the limitations of strict adherence to standards, critiquing the Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium's "Model Standards for Beginning Teacher Licensing and Development" and suggesting that it emphasizes instrumental thinking (focused on the means to particular ends) rather than an ethical orientation. The paper questions what success educators might have in resisting technicist conceptions of teaching. (SM)
