New Directions for Teacher Education in Bloomington

Indiana University has been involved in preparing students to become teachers since 1851, although the School of Education itself was not founded until 1908. Much has changed since the time of those initial efforts. The campus as a whole has expanded and become world-renowned for its research status. At the same time, the School of Education itself has developed a national and international reputation for both its undergraduate and graduate offerings.

We now find ourselves facing unique challenges in the 21st century. Our technological age requires citizens who can apply knowledge, reason analytically, and solve problems. American society is increasingly diverse, so school classrooms serve students who come from many backgrounds and cultures and who bring with them a wide range of abilities and interests. The educational community at large is engaged, along with policymakers and the general public, in a national debate about high standards for what all students should know and be able to do. The need for teachers who can help all students meet society's high performance expectations has created new challenges for teacher preparation.

In 2000, the IU Bloomington faculty approved a set of five goals to serve as guides for all efforts in the School of Education. The goals include: (1) to continue IU's commitment to strong pre-service teacher education, (2) to strengthen the School of Education's partnerships with P-12 schools and communities, (3) to enhance the school's research and graduate education programs, (4) to provide leadership in the appropriate use of technologies to enhance teaching and learning experiences, and (5) to promote diversity. These goals are interdependent. Together, they reflect the direction that the School of Education will take as it moves forward in the coming years.

One effort that has been constant throughout our history is a commitment to creating and sustaining high-quality, rigorous, engaging courses and programs for candidates aspiring to be teachers at all P-12 levels. A commitment to high-quality programs in turn requires that faculty and candidates in the School of Education, with our colleagues from other units of Indiana University and from the public schools, engage in conversations that lead to novel initiatives, alternative directions, and new ways of thinking about teacher education. We must work collaboratively to help our teacher candidates attain the content, pedagogical, and professional knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary for teaching in contemporary schools.

Our collective commitment at IU Bloomington to the development of exemplary teacher education programs has been abundantly clear throughout the past decade. This bulletin provides an outline of our most recent efforts to offer contemporary, responsive, and effective teacher education programs, courses, and policies. Central to our deliberations about the direction of teacher education has been the adoption and enactment in all our teacher education programs of a set of six principles that define, in comprehensive ways, our conceptual framework for teacher education. The six principles are listed below. Accompanying each is an elaboration composed of three parts: a statement about why the principle is important, a statement about implications of the principle for our teacher education programs, and a statement about what the principle implies for teacher candidate expectations.

IU Bloomington's Six Principles for Teacher Education

  1. Knowledge and Multiple Forms of Understanding
    Effective teachers possess a well-grounded knowledge of the content areas that are central to their teaching. They also have an in-depth comprehension of the forms of knowledge embodied in the traditional disciplines, of the interdisciplinary nature of inquiry, and of the multiple forms of understanding that individual students bring to the classroom. Thus, all our teacher education programs help teacher candidates acquire practical wisdom that integrates forms of understanding, skilled action in and outside classrooms, and a particular sensitivity to the diversity of students. Teacher candidates are expected to be well grounded in student development, the content areas that are central to their teaching, and assessment strategies.
  2. Learning Environment
    Teachers are expected to be thoughtful, reflective, caring practitioners in actual educational settings. Teacher education programs must maintain or create experiences in schools and on campus so that instructors can assist candidates in developing and assessing this professional expertise. Thus, all our teacher education programs include early and continuous engagement—through direct immersion or simulation—with the multiple realities of children, teaching, and schools. Teacher candidates are expected to create and nurture a positive physical, social, and academic learning environment.
  3. Personalized Learning
    Good teachers build on their students' interests, orientation to learning, and hopes. Similarly, teacher education programs should offer teacher candidates opportunities to individualize and personalize their preparation as teachers. Thus, all our teacher education programs give teacher candidates a significant measure of control over how, when, and where their learning takes place, thus enabling their interests and values to shape major portions of their work. Teacher candidates are expected to understand students' ability levels, interests, and learning styles. They should demonstrate instruction that reflects the diversity among all learners.
  4. Community
    Effective teacher preparation requires that participants develop a sense of community through engagement in shared activities and issues. The longevity of relationships required to establish community has several advantages for all its members. It brings coherence to programs, fosters an appreciation of the power of cooperative effort, and encourages a dialogue that promotes the continual rejuvenation of teacher education. Thus, all our teacher education programs foster a sense of community among their teacher candidates, among faculty members, between faculty members and candidates, and between the university and the schools. Teacher candidates are expected to understand and to be involved in their academic learning community. They should build and develop relationships within the school, corporation, and community.
  5. Critical Reflection
    Effective teachers reflect critically on the moral, political, social, and economic dimensions of education. This requires an understanding of the multiple contexts in which schools function, an appreciation of diverse perspectives on educational issues, and a commitment to democratic forms of interaction. Thus, all our teacher education programs encourage students to develop their own social and educational visions that are connected to critically reflective practice. Teacher candidates are expected to reflect continuously on all aspects of their teaching experience to identify ways for improvement as individuals, as a part of the school community, and as part of the teaching profession.
  6. Intellectual, Personal, and Professional Growth
    Teachers are more than technicians or purveyors of information. Accordingly, they must be committed to lifelong intellectual, personal, and professional growth. Because both faculty and teacher candidates must continually develop these habits of mind, teacher education programs must stimulate the exploration and development of the full range of human capabilities. Thus, all our teacher education programs foster intellectual curiosity and encourage an appreciation of learning through the sustained analysis of ideas, values, and practices; and through intuition, imagination, and aesthetic experience. Teacher candidates are expected to develop a philosophy of teaching and learning. This philosophy and continuous professional growth should include values, commitments, and professional development.
As part of a premiere research institution, the IU Bloomington teacher education community is committed to seeing inquiry practices and an inquiry orientation as foundational to all our teacher education programs. This commitment means that undergraduate instructors rarely tell teacher candidates what it means to be an effective teacher, but instead provide guidance along with intellectual and practical entry points into the range of literature, scholarly debates, and experiences that help define contemporary education. Candidates, as a result of this inquiry orientation, will develop the understanding necessary to become effective teachers. In other words, "inquiry" and "practice," "research" and "teaching," "thinking" and "doing" are expected to be integrated concepts and activities, rather than oppositional ones.

Accountability and improvement in teacher preparation are central to IU Bloomington's mission. Graduates of all of our teacher education programs are expected to demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and dispositions expected of beginning teachers as set forth by the Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (INTASC) and as adopted by the Indiana Professional Standards Board (IPSB) in its new licensing regulations, known as Rules 2000. Through these standards that focus on systematic assessment and performance-based learning, our teacher education programs commit to engaging in continuous reevaluation and improvement.

As we begin this new millennium, our individual and collective efforts in the School of Education at IU Bloomington continue to be focused on developing the very best possible experiences for teacher candidates, and ultimately on improving the quality of education for P-12 pupils. We eagerly begin this new phase of Indiana University's 150-year institutional commitment: to offer exemplary educational opportunities for prospective teachers and to enhance the quality of educational experiences in classrooms throughout Indiana, the nation, and the world.

Project TEAM

Project TEAM is a research and development initiative designed to increase the number of students from underrepresented minority backgrounds who complete their baccalaureate degree and enter the teaching profession. Based on the theme of "strengthening social justice through education," Project TEAM offers a supportive teaching-learning community for selected students and provides academic, social, and financial assistance as needed. An important part of Project TEAM is the honors seminar that students take each semester, which is limited to students in TEAM and may be taken for 1-3 credits. The honors seminars focus on issues of social justice, multicultural teaching, collaborative inquiry, professional development, and educational leadership. Criteria for acceptance include academic record (a minimum GPA of 2.5), academic goals (a genuine interest in intellectual development and lifelong learning), involvement in community service, and a commitment to a career in education. Students admitted into Project TEAM may participate in any of the teacher education programs offered on the Bloomington campus.

About the Program

The undergraduate program in early childhood education is a four-year sequence of courses that prepares individuals to teach in infant/toddler and preschool programs, kindergarten through grade 3 classrooms, and work in other settings that employ early childhood professionals. The course of study is premised on the belief that students should engage in an exploration of literacy and diversity through inquiry and reflection. Literacy involves mastering a variety of symbol systems in which meaning is created and shared with others: reading, writing, art, mathematics, music, science, and others. The program enables students to acquire competence in these areas and the pedagogical expertise necessary to nurture growth and development in all young children.

Students will be actively engaged in a variety of activities, assignments, projects, and field experiences in order to: 1) acquire the knowledge, skills, and dispositions of an effective teacher; 2) develop sensitivity to issues of diversity of all forms (e.g. race, class, culture, gender, disability); and 3) embrace ethical, social, and intellectual commitments to young children.

Students will be admitted in and progress through their course work in a cohort with others who have begun at the same time. The small size of the program is designed to enhance a sense of community among students, core faculty, and practicing professionals. Practitioners from a variety of early childhood settings will be involved in the teaching of courses and the design of field experiences, thereby fostering community among those inside and outside the university.

The Early Childhood Education Program is divided into three main components, as follows:

General Education 41 cr.
Electives 6 cr.
Professional Education 78 cr.
Total 125 cr.

Theory Into Practice: A Program in Both Primary and Intermediate Elementary, K-6

The Theory Into Practice Program (TIP) is a four year program for students who want to be elementary school teachers. The TIP program emphasizes the application of theory and research to the day-to-day world of elementary teachers in a wide range of schools. Courses and field experiences focus on helping students develop the entry-level skills and knowledge needed to employ the current and emerging diagnostic and instructional "tools" that are used in a majority of elementary schools and that will allow them to successfully teach students with a diverse set of abilities. Through their subject concentration area, students gain in-depth experience in the subject of their choice—such as math, science, language arts, social studies, or fine arts. Program experiences are designed to help students identify knowledge that is worthwhile for elementary students and to design and teach lessons constructed around such knowledge. As a whole, program experiences provide for a close "fit" between course work and field experiences, with the goal of providing students with many opportunities to apply and reflect upon what they are learning.

Students will typically apply to the TIP program toward the end of their freshman year or early during their sophomore year. Admission criteria include an overall GPA of at least 2.5, passing scores on the PPST/Praxis exams, successful completion of EDUC P251/M101, EDUC Q200, EDUC W200, and MATH M118/A118 or D116 and D117. During their program of studies, students will complete three basic sets of requirements. The General Education component includes work in a cross-section of courses in numerous subject areas. The Area of Concentration enables students to gain a depth of knowledge in a subject of their choice. The Professional Component includes a series of subject-specific methods courses, work in the psychology of learning, applying technology in education settings, multicultural issues, the history of American education, an examination of the purpose of schooling in America, an ongoing set of increasingly demanding field experiences and related seminars, and culminates with a semester-long student teaching experience. Throughout their program, students will build a professional portfolio demonstrating their intellectual growth and ability to reflect.

TIP is an improved version of a program with a proven track record, a history of placing its graduates, and a group of faculty who are leaders in their respective fields. Students who desire a very practical, hands-on approach to their studies and who wish to graduate with the knowledge and skills required by a wide range of employers should consider the TIP program.

The Theory Into Practice K-6 Elementary Education Program is divided into three main components, as follows:

General Education 62 cr.
  Distribution 47 cr.
  Area of Concentration 15 cr.
Electives 0-5 cr.

About the Program

The goal of the Teaching All Learners Program is to prepare undergraduate students with knowledge of effective strategies and curriculum associated with teaching in classrooms with students having a wide range of developmental levels and abilities. Graduates of this program will be prepared to work as consultant teachers, co-teachers in inclusive settings, teachers in self-contained classrooms for students with exceptional needs, and general elementary education teachers. Successful completion of this program will result in license recommendation for K-6 Elementary, both Primary and Intermediate, and K-6 Exceptional Needs.

In Teaching All Learners, we emphasize the following:

  • Developing a strong understanding of general education curriculum and techniques
  • Developing mastery in working with students with exceptional behavioral and educational needs
  • The integration of theories, philosophies, and techniques more typically associated separately with either general or special education traditions
  • Research and inquiry
  • Collaborative teaching and learning
  • Intensive field-experience
The Teaching All Learners Program is divided into two main components as follows:
General Education 48-49 cr.
Professional Education 79 cr.
Total 128-129 cr.

About the Program

The Secondary Education Programs lead to a Bachelor of Science: Secondary Education degree in specific content fields. The content fields include: exceptional needs, foreign languages, journalism, language arts/English, mathematics, science, and social studies. The School of Education, in cooperation with the School of Health, Physical Education and Recreation, and the College of Arts and Sciences, also offers secondary content fields in Health and Theatre, respectively.

Successful completion of a secondary education program requires meeting both academic content and performance-based standards as assessed at different points by the School of Education and by state-designated tests. The secondary education teacher license in Indiana mandates a content field; a target population developmental level of early and late adolescence and young adulthood; and in the school setting multiple assignments at the middle school/junior high or high school grades 5-12.

The Bloomington campus offers two secondary programs:

  1. the Anchor Secondary Education Program
  2. the Community of Teachers
Both secondary programs include three basic areas of course work:
  1. General Education Requirements (33 credits)
  2. Content Field Requirements (36-68 credits)
  3. Professional Education Requirements (arranged-46 credits)
  4. Electives to total 124 credits
Return to Secondary Education Programs

General Education—Anchor Program and A Community of Teachers (33 credit hours)

Courses used to satisfy general-education requirements also may be applied to fulfill requirements for a subject matter specialty study. In such cases, the course may be used to meet all requirements to which it will apply, but the credit hours may be counted only once towards the total of 124 credit hours needed for a degree. With the exception of MATH M025, MATH M026, M027, and MUS ensemble courses, no course below the 100 level and no course with a "J" prefix in the College of Arts and Sciences may be used to meet the subject matter specialty requirement.

To attain the minimum 40 credit hours, the student will have to take more than the minimum number of credit hours in at least one of the three stated categories. The number of credit hours in each category is also limited by a maximum number. The speech requirement may not be met by correspondence. Credit examinations are available to students who believe they have the competence required in a course, if the department chairperson agrees. See appropriate school bulletins for course descriptions. Also, some COAS TOPICS courses may be used toward completing the general-education requirement. See an advisor for course eligibility.

Professional Education—A Community of Teachers

A highly individualized way to earn a secondary teaching license, A Community of Teachers (CoT) centers on an ongoing seminar that features intensive, hands-on work in one school. Students complete the program not by earning course credits, but by completing a portfolio of evidence of their ability as teachers.

The Seminar
The central requirement of the program is an ongoing seminar (EDUC S400) that is led from one semester to the next by the same faculty member. Each seminar group contains students from different majors and includes both beginning students and student teachers. Each semester, the seminar's focus is determined by the students and their professor; and under the umbrella of the seminar, each student organizes and carries out an individualized program of preparation. The seminar replaces six of the professional education courses of the standard program: EDUC W200, EDUC P312, EDUC P313, EDUC H340, EDUC M300, and the first special methods course, EDUC MXXX, as well as all fieldwork courses associated with them (EDUC M201, EDUC M301, EDUC M401, and EDUC M403). However, completion of any of these courses still counts as progress toward the completion of the CoT program.

The Apprenticeship
CoT students spend one day a week in a school of their choice, working with a teacher of their choice who has consented to be their mentor. The relationship continues throughout students' professional preparations, including student teaching.

The Portfolio
The activities of the apprenticeship are guided by a list of 30 Program Expectations that students satisfy by building evidence of their teaching capabilities. The evidence is organized in a portfolio that supports the case students must make to the faculty of their readiness to enter the profession.

Requirements (24-44 credit hours)

EDUC S400 Field-Based Seminar in Teacher Education (4 cr., repeatable) Students take S400 each semester that they are in the program. The minimum tenure in S400 is two semesters (8 cr.), but five semesters (20 cr.) is more typical. The CoT requirements for admission to teacher education are identical to those of the standard program, except that students need to complete only one semester of S400 to apply.

EDUC M464 Methods of Teaching Reading (3 cr.)

EDUC M480 Student Teaching: Secondary School (10-16 cr. )

Electives and other area requirements to reach 124 credit hours.

Students must satisfy the portfolio requirement to earn their teaching licenses. Students who already hold bachelors' degrees may also complete their license requirements through CoT.

Admittance to CoT is by application and interview. For more information, contact Tom Gregory, Education 3206, 856-8144; Internet: gregory@indiana.edu; or visit the CoT web site: education.indiana.edu/~comteach.

About the Program

The All School Settings programs in music education, physical education, and visual arts education lead to a Bachelor of Science degree in those select content fields. The School of Music and the School of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation offer the degree programs in those respective fields. These programs are currently under revision. Detailed information and advising about those particular programs is provided by those schools.

Successful completion of the Bachelor of Science in music education, physical education, and visual arts programs requires meeting both academic content and performance-based standards as assessed at different points by the respective schools and by state designated testing. The All-Grade education teacher license in Indiana mandates a content field; a target population at developmental levels of early and middle childhood, early and late adolescence and young adulthood; and multiple assignments in the school settings of kindergarten, elementary, middle school/junior high or high school grades 5-12.

Music education, physical education, and visual arts are the only majors that lead to certification in teaching grades K-12.

The All School Settings program is divided into three main components. With the addition of electives, course work must total a minimum of 124 credit hours, as follows:

General Education 33 cr.
Professional Education 28-53 cr.
Subject Matter Specialty Studies 36-62 cr.5
Electives 0-22 cr.6
Total 124 cr.

Courses used to satisfy general education requirements also may be applied to fulfill requirements for a subject matter specialty study. In such cases, the course may be used to meet all requirements to which it will apply, but the credit hours may be counted only once toward the total of 124 credit hours needed for a degree. With the exception of MATH M025 and M026, no course below the 100 level and no course with a "J" prefix in the College of Arts and Sciences may be used to meet the subject matter specialty study requirement.
