The Characteristics of a Model Technology Education Teacher
Kaufman, Andrew R.; Warner, Scott A.; Buechele, Jessica R.
Technology and Engineering Teacher, v70 n8 p25-33 May-Jun 2011
The things that make the quality of a teacher stand out can cover a wide range of characteristics, actions, words, and experiences. The mark left on a student by a teacher, for good or bad, is written in an ink that will last a lifetime. This article describes a study that identifies the characteristics of exceptional technology education teachers. The origins of this study came about in 2007 when the Board of Directors of the International Technology Education Association (now known as the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association, ITEEA) established a task force to identify the characteristics of a model technology education teacher. The authors discuss how they organized and conducted the study. As the final responsibility assigned to this task force, this article provides the members of the profession with a summary of the research findings. (Contains 6 figures and 7 tables.)
