A Tutoring Model for Promoting the Pedagogical-Disciplinary Skills of Prospective Teachers
Ragonis, Noa; Hazzan, Orit
Mentoring & Tutoring: Partnership in Learning, v17 n1 p67-82 Feb 2009
This article presents a tutor-centered tutoring model that aims to develop and establish the pedagogical-disciplinary knowledge and skills of prospective teachers. The tutoring model and the research that accompanied its implementation are presented. The tutor-tutee pairs worked for two five-session cycles for two semesters, enabling prospective teachers to experience teaching situations by guiding the tutee through problem-solving processes. The sessions were based on difficulties that arose during the tutees' learning process. The research findings focus on the evaluation of the model by its participants--tutors, tutees and program coordinator--and indicate that the main tutoring targets were achieved. This tutoring model was implemented with prospective computer science teachers; we suggest, however, that it is applicable in teacher preparation programs in other disciplines in which problem solving is inherent.
