Examining Effective Teaching via a Social Constructivist Pedagogy "Case Study"
Wright, Steven; Grenier, Michelle
Education, v130 n2 p255-264 Win 2009
As students engage in pre-service teacher (PT) activities, they take a number of courses that help prepare them to teach in schools. During that time, they must also form their own understanding of what teaching and learning means for them (Kroll, 2004). In many cases, this can conflict with their view of teaching as a command approach to learning. Within teacher education programs, a constructivist alignment with the notion of learning as a developmental process allows students to reconfigure their understanding of teaching and learning (Bruner, 2003).
