New Opportunities for Change in American Teacher Education: Insights from Hong Kong
Gal, Diane
Educational Studies: Journal of the American Educational Studies Association, v47 n3 p240-259 2011
This article is an exploration of the emerging narratives on learning and teacher education in the United States and Hong Kong, as found in official policy statements and curriculum documents. Particular attention is given to Hong Kong's initiative in implementing an interdisciplinary liberal studies curriculum, and the continued professional development of teachers for this proposed change. This recent trend is used to illustrate the possibilities for a broader vision of creating and substantiating knowledge and learning in teacher education programs in the United States.
