Teaching in Teacher Education
Fridays 10:00 - 11:00 AM
Instructor: Jesse Goodman

Are you working in a teacher education program?  If so, you might
consider signing up for this one (1) credit seminar.  Its purpose is
to explore substantive issues that directly emerge from our work with
preservice or inservice teachers.  As a result, it focuses on the
concerns, problems, and insights that we generate in our positions as
teacher educators.  Past seminars have typically examine questions
such as: what is the purpose(s) of teacher education in our society,
what is the relationship between “good” teaching and teacher
education, how should “good/poor teaching” be defined, what are useful
ways to respond to student resistance and apathy, what responses are
appropriate when confronted with students who express anti-democratic
dispositions (e.g., racism, sexism, homophobia etc.), how do we know
if our work as teacher educators is worthwhile and mean¬ingful, and
what role, if any, should standards and evaluation play in the
education of preservice and inservice teachers.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to con¬tact the
instructor at 856-8143 or .
