CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Good teacher education not only enhances the understanding and skills of new
teachers, but increases the likelihood of them staying in the profession. In
Priorities in Teacher Education , Clare Kosnik and Clive Beck argue that
teacher preparation should be given sharper focus, identifying seven priority
areas: program planning pupil assessment classroom organization and community
inclusive education subject content and pedagogy professional identity a vision
Long-time teacher education instructors and researchers themselves, the
authors identified these priorities through literature-based research and the
findings of a three-year study following twenty-two graduates through their
first years of teaching. Packed with examples and quotes about these
experiences, the book is broken down into seven chapters, each focusing on one
of the seven priorities and containing a case study of one teacher whose
experiences embody the priority being discussed.
As the chapters progress, the authors increasingly demonstrate the interplay
between the seven priorities, showing that none of them can be pursued in
isolation, and building a comprehensive base of essential knowledge for
Teacher educators will find Priorities in Teacher Education a key guide to
pre-service preparation, while new and student teachers will benefit enormously
from reading the ‘front line’ accounts of their contemporaries.
