A Course Exploration: Guiding Instruction to Prepare Students as Change Agents in Educational Reform
Church, Kathy L.
InSight: A Journal of Scholarly Teaching, v5 p15-26 2010
This article explores the premise of teacher identity development through course experiences directed at inquiry and social awareness. The course exploration examines the use of various strategies used to help promote educators as change agents. Pre-service students enrolled in a one-year master's program with teaching credential participated in a yearlong course designed to engage them in guided inquiry while making connections between theory and practice. Evaluation of the projects and student perceptions of their work suggest that guided inquiry into educational issues builds critical thinking skills and a sense of purpose, leadership, and service through shaping teacher identity.
