Action in Teacher Education, v30 n2 p36-45 Sum 2008
Schools today function in an environment of complicated rules and regulations. Training preservice teachers in educational law is not only necessary; it is important work. Professors and administrators were surveyed on the methods, materials, and strategies that they employed to teach education law to preservice teachers. The predominant teaching method used was lecture in combination with class discussion. Other methods used in conjunction with lecture and class discussion were case method and problem-based learning. Teaching strategies include the use of teacher-specific education law textbooks, media/technology, simulations, educational games, and cooperative learning groups. Emphasis needs to be placed on better preparing preservice teachers in the area of school law. This article offers insight into the effective methods, materials, and strategies currently being used in teaching preservice teachers school law.
