An Instructional Model for Preparing Teachers for Fieldwork
Hughes, Jacqueline
International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, v21 n2 p252-257 2009
Teacher education and the teaching profession are adapting to innovative methods to ensure the professional longevity and effectiveness of those who become educators. This is particularly important because of the early, and sometimes abrupt, exit of beginning teachers from the profession. Clearly, to mitigate such early exodus from the profession, those responsible for teacher education must examine how they prepare student teachers and whether or not they are equipped to face the realities of the classroom when they enter the profession. This paper presents a modality that engages pre-professionals or student teachers in meaningful and productive field experiences that will improve student teachers' learning. The author presents an instructional model that can be applied to prepare student teachers for more effective field experiences that will improve their learning. (Contains 2 tables.)
