Changing Times in Teacher Education : Restructuring or Reconceptualising? by Marvin Wideen( Book )

Pressures for reform in teacher education have begun to take on the same sense of urgency as school reform. Those faculties of education who have been strong advocates for change in the schools now find themselves the subject of similar pressures from governmental policy makers. Attempts at change have taken place in many different countries and jurisdictions around the world.; This book details, through a series of international vignettes, how teachers are responding to the changing times and social contexts in which they do their work. The authors hold the view that changes are inevitable in

Role expectations for the three positions in the student teaching triad by Harold C Ratzlaff( Book )
2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The lack of clear consensus among cooperating teachers and university advisors about expectations for the student teacher role ties in closely with the confusion that currently exists about the respective supervisory roles. Student teaching continues in many programs to be structured around the traditional triad which has been characterized as lacking clear agreement about the roles played by each member. This paper reports a Canadian replication of American (1964-1971) research seeking to clarify role expectations for the student teaching triad. Subjects were classroom teachers, students enrolled in a teacher training program at the University of British Columbia, and the university faculty who act as field advisors. Results of the study revealed that while the advisors in the American study felt that cooperating teachers should not inform student teachers of the aims and objectives of teaching in the district, the Canadian advisors strongly endorsed the expectation that cooperating teachers initiate student teachers into the ethos and context of the district in which the practice teaching takes place. These different responses appear to reflect the general intellectual, moral, and cultural climate of the times rather than differences between American and Canadian cultures. The implications for teaching and teacher education of those tendencies to move from a more liberal and critial-reflective university-based program to a field-based, practitioner supervised, on-the-job training as the preferred form of teacher socialization are pointed out.

Teacher education in the English-speaking world : past, present, and future by C Whitehead( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This edited book is a comparative study on teacher education across ten major Englishspeaking regions of the world (USA, English Canada, England and Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Singapore, Hong Kong, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand). The focus on individual regions is reflective of a comparative approach with a long tradition going back to the turn of the twentieth century. This approach is still valid at the present time as it provides one of the best ways of initially structuring our understanding of teacher education at the macro level in order to facilitate communication of the situation crossnationally and prepare the way for higher levels of analyses. To this end, the book has twelve chapters: An introductory chapter details the focus of the book. This is followed by a chapter on each of the ten regions. Each of these chapters, written by an expert in the field: focuses on general trends in teacher education rather than on any specific aspect of it; focuses primarily on pre-service teacher education at the primary and post-primary levels, although some reference is also made to continuing professional development; strikes a balance between past, present and future trends; deals broadly with access to, the processes involved in, and the structure of, teacher education; has a unique structure rather than one based upon a formulaic approach. In the final chapter major themes are distilled from the case studies. It also outlines how the book furthers understanding of teacher education internationally, considers other groupings of regions ripe for consideration along similar lines, and indicates initiatives arising out of the case studies worthy of consideration for the improvement of teacher education crossnationally
A Proposal to Study the Effects of Supervisory Intervention on the Classroom Teaching Performance of Supervisees by Peter Philip Grimmett( Book )
1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The proposed study will examine whether effective clinical supervision requires supervisors who practice certain strategies and procedures as they dialogue with supervisees in the conference, or whether the mere acquisition by supervisors and/or supervisees of research-verified knowledge about teaching and learning, E.G., the role of academic feedback in pupil learning, is sufficient to improve the classroom teaching of the supervisee. This "process" vis-a-vis "content" investigation will be examined in the light of the supervisor conceptual level. "Process" strategies and procedures have been identified only in high conceptual level supervisors. This study may demonstrate that these strategies are associated with a positive effect on supervisee teaching. Where practicing supervisors are not using these strategies, they could be taught as a compensatory model for improving effects of supervisory intervention. It is suggested that "content" about teaching and learning in itself is associated with positive effects on supervisee classroom teaching. It is tentatively concluded that supervisors and/or supervisees merely need to be exposed to such knowledge. Where only supervisees are exposed to the "content" amd the effects on their classroom teaching are found to be positive, the viability of supervisory intervention is questionable, and different organizational means to bring about improved classroom teaching should be sought.

"Effective"Clinical Supervision Conference Interventions: A Preliminary Investigation of Participants' Conceptual Functioning by Peter Philip Grimmett( Book )
1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A study found that conceptual functioning level emerged as an important variable in distinguishing between effective and less effective supervisory intervention. Four supervisors, with their respective supervisees, participated in the study. Participants were videotaped and observed, and transcripts of conference dialogues and participant thought processes were analyzed. A comparison of general behavior patterns associated with supervisors who were more abstract or more concrete was made. More abstract supervisors used "feeding" questioning strategies: information-seeking, information-giving, delimiting, and guiding. They also held questions in abeyance (witholding expertise but not support) and stimulated supervisees to conduct analyses for themselves. Only when they were unable to elicit satisfactory appraisal from the supervisee did they give direct feedback. More concrete supervisors tended to ask inappropriate questions, emphasized the giving of critical feedback rather than probing, and seemed to encounter difficulties in communicating corrective feedback.
