Bridging the Theory-Practice Divide: A Creative Approach to Effective Teacher Preparation
Hughes, Jacqueline A.
Journal of Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v6 n1 p110-117 Aug 2006
Teacher educators need to remain current regarding the challenges that prospective teachers are going to face in their classrooms. One way to maintain this currency is for teacher educators periodically to spend some time in the K-12 classroom testing the theories they teach. This paper will discuss the benefits both teacher educators and prospective teachers will derive from engaging in such an activity. (Contains 1 footnote.)
