They Teach Us How to Teach Them: Teacher Preparation for the 21st Century
Pope, Carol; Beal, Candy; Long, Sheryl; McCammon, Lodge
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v11 n4 p324-349 Dec 2011
This article describes an English language arts teacher preparation perspective that considers middle school students as part of the teacher educator team. Based on a recognized gap in the literature about students as powerful partners, the authors undertook a 3-year study to explore the question, "What do preservice middle school teachers learn when middle school students assume the role of pedagogical experts?" Using the ever-popular young adult novel, "The Outsiders", as a nexus of literature study and an integration of technology and music, the authors created "The Outsiders" Project. They collected extensive qualitative data, including detailed field notes, preservice teachers' reflections, and digital videos, across the 3 years to analyze preservice teachers' views about the power of middle school students as teacher educators. (Contains 2 figures.)
