Flights from the Field and the Plight of Teacher Education: A Personal Perspective
Craig, Cheryl J.
Journal of Curriculum Studies, v41 n5 p605-624 2009
This self-study of my role in teacher education examines events in my career, using Schwab's deliberations on "the practical" as an interpretive tool with which to broaden, burrow, and re-story my personal experiences. Through reflecting inward and outward, backward and forward, I connect specific episodes I encountered in my career with Schwab's explication of "the practical". In the final analysis, my self-study reveals the seeds of a small renaissance: a change not only in the way teacher education is approached in my university, but also in how I think about it and participate in it. (Contains 12 notes.)
