No Substitute for Experience: Transforming Teacher Preparation with Experiential and Adult Learning Practices
Green, Gaynell; Ballard, Glenda H.
SRATE Journal, v20 n1 p12-20 Win 2010-2011
Traditional teacher preparation programs and alternative certification programs are under constant scrutiny and strain to prepare students to be more effective in the public classroom and remain in the profession. The Professional Development School is a contemporary, innovative model that shows promise for retaining novice teachers, particularly those working in challenging environments. The unique design results in a transformative learning experience for stakeholders. In particular, learning for the teaching intern is enriched and strengthened by application of experiential and adult learning theory. This approach has the potential of producing more reflective, self-directed learners/teachers with enhanced meta-cognitive skills. (Contains 1 figure.)
