Developing Learning Teachers: A Curriculum for Teacher Education
Norman, Patricia; Breidenstein, Angela
Teacher Education and Practice, v16 n1 p84-96 Spr 2003
A major premise of Trinity University's teacher education program is that good teachers are "students"--of children and childhood, learners and learning, curriculum and pedagogy. To help teacher candidates learn how to think, know, and act like teachers, inquiry is folded into every stage of the teacher preparation program. In this article we examine several important aspects of novices' learning to teach and describe specific inquiry-oriented assignments that students complete. Finally, we address the challenges we face in helping our students become lifelong learning teachers. (Contains 1 note.)
