The Magic of Psychology in Teacher Education
Fendler, Lynn
Journal of Philosophy of Education, v46 n3 p332-351 Aug 2012
Educational psychology is a curricular requirement for most teacher preparation programs in the world. Knowledge of educational psychology is assessed on examinations for teacher licensure in most jurisdictions, and understanding of psychology is assumed to be indispensible for effective teaching at all levels. Traditional university-based teacher-certification pathways have recently come under attack from various socio-political sectors, and the curriculum for teacher preparation is among the most contested issues. This article examines the lure of psychology for teacher education. (Contains 9 notes.)
