Becoming a Teacher in a Field-based Setting: An Introduction to Education and Classrooms
Wadsworth Publishing Company, 1999 - Education - 294 pages
Builds upon an increasingly popular trend of turning teacher-preparatory programs into more field-based operations. This text offers a traditional framework for a methods or education course, while adding the field-based component. Portfolio assessment is explained in the text, and illustrated by the various activities. This unique combination of pre-service and in-service voices is being called for throughout the discipline. While most Introduction to Education texts offer methods of teaching and various philosophies of teaching, BECOMING A TEACHER presents these and then links all the theory to actual practice. This text is praised for the participatory nature of the text through the use of activities and portfolio entries that help students reflect on their field experience.
