A new paradigm for teachers to open their classrooms and cultivate deep professional learning Teaching is an isolating profession. Most educators receive minimal feedback on their craft, typically limited to one or two short visits from the administrator each year. While some schools do encourage their teachers to observe peers, the usual protocol is for new teachers to watch the veteran, exemplary educators, but those less experienced educators could benefit immensely from having peers observe them in action. Teacher-Driven Observation is unique in that it places the observed teacher as leader of the work, the one who identifies a personal area for development, engages her colleagues in the collection of classroom data, and utilizes the data collected to inform her ongoing instruction. Offers a new model for collecting data to inform and improve individual instruction Includes a step-by-step process for implementing Teacher-Driven Observations Contains a comprehensive case study that clearly demonstrates the value of the Teacher-Driven Observation model This book outlines and illustrates a step-by-step process for breaking down professional isolation and cultivating opportunities for meaningful learning through the Teacher-Driven Observation process.

Reflection-on-practice has become a critical component of teacher professional development over the past decade. As a result, it is increasingly important for teacher educators to better understand the relationship between reflection and the development of pro­fessional expertise. This study involved a particular kind of self-reflection that utilized video of credential candidates' own teaching as the object of reflection. Reflection on the lesson was facilitated by either mental recall or videotaped lesson analysis. Video analysis is a powerful tool to support the growth of preservice teachers in making the critical connections between theoretical pedagogy and classroom interactions. Video analysis of their own classroom performance can shift reflections from being centered on teacher actions to looking more broadly at teacher and student interactions. The effects of video analysis can persist over time and supported the professional growth of new teachers. The results of this study strongly suggest that professional development activities that target improved reflection-on-practice through the use of video analysis can be effective.

This book is written by a diverse cohort of American educators, including professors, teachers, and school administrators from pre-K to college levels. They come from disciplinary areas of child development, special education, English as a second language, counseling, technology, school administration, educational psychology, educational measurement and testing, as well as mathematics education. The chapters explore various topics, ranging from standardized testing, roles of central office, teacher evaluation, teacher professional development, gender differences, diversity, student engagement and parental involvement, student services provided at school, use of technology with teacher and students' perspectives of technology use, self-efficacy beliefs, to teacher's perspectives of play in early childhood settings. While the chapters reflect diverse conceptual and theoretical orientation, disciplinary focus, methodological emphasis, writing styles, and educational implications, they add together to present a more holistic picture of Chinese education across disciplinary areas. Taken together, these chapters reveal salient similarities and differences in theoretical underpinnings, pedagogical principles and classroom practices in China and in the United States. They also shed light on some of the larger conceptual/theoretical orientations between learning and learners in the two countries.

Despite the commitment to promote equity and excellence in education, significant gaps remain in understanding the numeracy development of students with special needs. How these students become competent with fraction ideas, essential skills needed to become numerate and learn higher mathematics, is unclear. Most studies rely on an experimental design to teach basic skills through drill and practice, very few focus on conceptual understanding, learning more complex mathematics, or researching teacher professional development. This book reports the learning journey of three middle school teachers and their students with special needs. Using design based research method, a range of activities and instructional games were designed to teach for conceptual understanding. Analysis of classroom interactions helped identify the connection between teacher knowledge, learning activities, and student learning, and in turn, contribute to our understanding of how to help these students to become numerate.

This book highlights professionalism and effectiveness of the teacher counsellor in student Guidance and Counselling in secondary schools in Nandi County, Kenya. The author points out that in Kenya, teachers are not trained as professional counsellors yet every school has a Guidance and Counselling Department. Jepkemboi establishes that Guidance and Counselling in secondary schools is not the responsibility of teacher counsellors per se; rather, other stake holders such as school chaplains, parents, head teachers and peer counsellors play a role in Guidance and Counselling services. She observes that Guidance and Counselling facilities, in secondary schools, are not adequate and effective. Therefore, the author recommends that the government trains and deploys teacher counsellors to schools for effective co-ordination of Guidance and Counselling programs. She posits that there should also be a continuous professional development for the present teacher counsellors to equip them with knowledge and skills on effective Guidance and Counselling. This book is a must-read for teacher educators, professional school counsellors, school teachers and school principals in Kenya and beyond.

Teachers are learners of language teaching, which is a life-long and on-going process. Every teacher is responsible for her own development. Dedicated teachers learn throughout their careers, actively participating in a culture where they learn more about the content they teach and about the instructional and assessment practices they use with that content. To change their practice, teachers must go through a regular process of self-analysis, inquiry, and reflection. This book consists of a study conducted at a state university in Turkey to encourage professional development of English language instructors. Critical Friends Group (CFG) model was applied to promote teacher collaboration. Through a development-based in-service teacher training (INSET) programme, participant teachers in the School of Foreign Languages were expected to explore their own professional development, as well as to foster peer development by the help of CFG.

The anchor book, Empowered Educators: How High-Performing Systems Shape Teaching Quality Around the World, is written by Linda Darling-Hammond and colleagues, with contributions from the authors of this volume. The authors of Empowered Educators in Australia take an in-depth look at the policies and practices surrounding teaching quality in two different states: New South Wales (NSW) and Victoria. NSW offers significant support for government schools in areas such as staffing and teacher professional development. Victoria operates a highly devolved school system. Each provides a contrasting view of how federal and state policies combine to shape learning outcomes for students in Australia. The interplay between state and federal policy characterizes an intriguing «centralizing decentralization.» Initiatives to create national curricular, teaching, and teacher education standards all sit in balanced tension with a movement towards greater devolution of authority to schools. Together the NSW and Victoria case studies provide insights into policies that can support high-quality teaching in a federal education system. Australia's current educational reforms place increasing emphasis on issues of teaching quality, reshaping teaching as a standards-based, evidence-informed profession, and one that seeks to foster collegiality and professional exchange. These reforms encompass many aspects of a system that supports teaching quality, and highlight: the way teachers are trained, how they are inducted into the teaching profession and supported with mentors, the professional learning they receive, how they are appraised on their work, and the career pathways for teachers.

It appears that teachers and teacher educators have fossilized in their resolve to continue doing what they've always done, despite calls for fundamental change.So, what does ""a changed world"" actually mean for teachers and teacher educators? How might society prepare teachers for this changed world and what are the new capabilities that such a program should focus on? What does fundamental change in teaching and teacher education actually look like?This book is about teacher education reform and seeks to answer these and other questions. More specifically the book aims to showcase a disruptive model in teacher education and answer some of the ponderings around what teacher education could be and how it could be organized differently for the different world in which teachers now have to operate.

How can we approach professional development in a thoughtful way, keep teachers motivated, and make the process worthwhile?It's a truth that school leaders can't deny: teachers tend to think of PD as a distraction from the "real work" of the classroom-as something to get through instead of an opportunity to engage, learn, and grow as professionals. Too often, they're absolutely right. When PD is packaged as a one-size-fits-all, one-and-done experience, even content that teachers might greet with enthusiasm won't stay with them for long. It just doesn't stick.In Professional Development That Sticks, Fred Ende makes the case for a better approach-one that melds traditional PD structures with personalized learning. Here, school leaders will find a framework for developing professional learning experiences that spark and maintain teacher motivation and lead to real changes in practice. Ende's three-stage professional development for learning (PDL) process covers critical aspects of planning, providing, and following up. In addition, PDL's Think, Act, and Reflect method ensures your teachers will acquire meaningful, deep, "sticky" learning that lasts.

A volume in Adult Education Special Topics: Theory, Research,and Practice in Lifelong LearningSeries Editor: Kathleen P. King, Fordham UniversityThe power of teacher inquiry is revealed when educators examinetheir practices and the factors that influence them with the purpose ofmaking necessary changes to improve the learning opportunities of theirstudents, and working conditions in schools. As such, in this book theauthor proposes that reflection and inquiry done by teachers in multilingualclassrooms and schools may assist them to construct effective learningcommunities. In this book, Dr. Nevárez-La Torre examines differentways to reflect and conduct teacher inquiry in instructional settings wherestudents speak more than one language.Her exploration focuses on a teacher-oriented question: What happens when practitioners whowork in multilingual schools inquire about their own practice, their students' learning, and their school'sability to create a community of learners and thinkers? The main purpose of the book is to delineate amodel for conducting classroom inquiry that teachers may follow to pursue important questions abouttheir practice and multilingual students' learning process.Some special features of the volume include: a case study of amultilingual teacher inquiry group; description of the steps to followin designing and implementing inquiry projects; and a bibliography ofkey resources (i.e., books, websites, and journals) for conductingteacher inquiry as...

Technology For Transformation. Perspectives of Hope in the Digital Age

6277 руб.
This book serves as a platform for educators and researchers to unite educational technology and social justice. While educational technology is a rapidly changing and progressive field of research and practice, it remains largely separate from education for social justice. Current literature about educational technology is often approached from a technical, how-to perspective that emphasizes ways to implement technology into the classroom. Technology is often viewed as inevitable, yet neutral and value-free. Educational technology, however, is anything but neutral. The contributors collectively advance a hopeful discourse by exploring the potential of technology as a vehicle to transform and emancipate, while not forgoing a critically reflective measure of self-conscious critique of our own role as educators, students, or scholars in oppressive silences, constraints and conditions. This edited collection makes an important and unique contribution to the field, as it will be the first published volume to detail research, theory, and practice regarding student use of technology in achieving liberatory aims since IAP's 2009 publication, ICT for Education, Development and Social Justice.The fields of educational technology and social justice are vast and applicable in many domains, including teacher education, graduate programs, and K-12 education. This work is intended to appeal to a diverse academic and professional audience of K-12 teachers, teacher educators, educational...

Teacher Development in Action offers a rich account of language teachers' engagement with the latest research in second language motivation on a year-long teacher development project. It offers an in-depth analysis of how language teachers mobilize (or not) their vast inner resources when they make sense of new material, and sheds light on why language classrooms do not always become acquisition-rich and motivating environments, even when teachers show great interest in new ideas and find them highly relevant to their practice. Drawing on a grounded theory ethnographic study of EFL teachers in Slovakia, this book, now in paperback, breaks new theoretical ground in the language teacher cognition domain and weaves together findings from field notes, classroom observations and interviews into an integrated model of Language Teacher Conceptual Change (LTCC). The new insights into the complex and dynamic nature of teacher development constitute an original contribution to the field of applied linguistics and have significant implications for second language teacher education and development.

Master's Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject Sociology - Children and Youth, grade: A, Panjab University (Government Home Science College, Chandigarh, India), course: Masters in Child Development, language: English, abstract: The present study was designed to investigate adolescent adjustment problems and school counselling services as perceived by adolescents, educators and parents. The objectives of the study were: (1) to gain an insight into perception of adolescents, educators and parents regarding adjustment problems of adolescents in various domains, (2) to gauge the views of educators, parents and adolescents regarding need and importance of counselling services in schools, (3) to understand the views of educators, parents and adolescents related to various aspects of implementation of school counselling services.The results obtained from both the responses on the Student problem checklist and on the questionnaires indicated similar perception of adjustment problems. The study revealed that school going adolescents perceived low adjustment in the domains of studies, occupation and health. All the respondents emphasized on the need of counselling for the school going adolescents. However, very few had actually approached any professional ever for counselling and were not very clear about the role of counselors in schools. The results also revealed that adolescents and parents preferred approaching teachers rather than the professional counselors for help. The t...

This study explores the discourses used to frame and implement standards for teacher preparation in the United States as developed by the National Council of Teachers of English. Using Critical Discourse Analysis and theories from the New Literacy Studies as lenses, Dr. Burns explores and explains the policy processes used by professional educators to govern their work. He offers research-based critiques of the ways policy language used in teaching and teacher education empower and (more often) impede individuals' ability to utilize their professional knowledge and exercise political power as experts and true authorities in their field. The study also examines how representations of literary studies and other major topics in literacy education intersect, overlap, and conflict in ways that pose important challenges that all curriculum designers and education reformers must confront in order to successfully engage national education reforms.

This book is an exploration of student teachers experiences of teachers' professional identity within the context of curriculum change. It is the product of a qualitative exploratory case study of student teachers experiences. The book theorises that teachers professional identity is a fluid concept as such student teachers need an arsenal to fully function as teachers. The book discusses four major issues (the complicated demand teaching places on the student teacher, the curriculum or the sum total of what happens in schools, the relationship between content and pedagogy and finally professional development) that experiencing teachers' professional identity is all about. It also picks up on the nuanced and challenging nature of the teaching and learning process and ultimately provides a way forward for student teachers professional development. The book also recommends a thorough interrogation and restructuring of teacher education courses in most universities and admonished stake holders to take into consideration the challenges student teachers go through when experiencing teachers' professional identity to improve teacher education.

Conversely, it also illustrates the limits of the “tools-only” emphasis that is often promoted through technology conferences and social media.This framework addresses complex issues regarding technology in education: teacher buy-in, balancing teacher and student needs, developing a professional development program that analyzes learners, the community, and teachers. The book is both an easy-to-read guide and a call-to-arms. It encourages school personnel to set benchmarks and track performance changes based on technology initiatives in order to prove to stakeholders that technology is indeed making a difference.

Teacher evaluation--a term that brings fear, anticipation, stress, anxiety, or even boredom to the hearts of teachers and administrators everywhere. How can we reinvent teacher evaluation so that it really makes a difference--so that everyone in school benefits from it, so that teachers and administrators learn from it, so that students succeed as a result of it? The bad news is that many schools and districts seem to be stuck in old ruts, involving The Observation, The Behavior Checklist, and The Conference. The good news is that many districts have paved the way for teacher evaluation to actually become professional development, by using a three-track evaluation system:* Track I, for beginning teachers, promotes growth and new learning through mentoring, frequent observations, and support systems.* Track II, for tenured teachers--that is, most teachers in the system--promotes professional learning experiences through self-assessment, goal setting, data collection, formative evaluations, study groups, action plans, and evaluation in which teachers play an active role.* Track III, for tenured teachers needing assistance, focuses on remediating difficulties and recommending further action.More good news: Through concrete examples, useful forms, and assessment tools, this book provides a clear roadmap to effective teacher evaluation systems that combine quality assurance with professional development for all teachers.

Early Childhood Development Education involves giving educational foundation to children aged eight years and below. This foundation should be holistic: catering for cognitive, linguistic, physical and moral well being of the child. During this period of growth, the child is under care of the parent and the teacher. The training of the teacher as a caregiver should prepare and equip the teacher with the vocational and practical knowledge and skills to ensure the expected all-round development of the child. This work analyses the ECDE policy, programmes and ECDE teacher training in Kenya to find out their effectiveness towards achieving holistic development as a central goal of ECDE.
