From the AgAnda for Education in a Democracy Series Sponsored by the National Network for Educational Renewal "This book is comprehensive in its account of what goes into thesubstance and process of preparing the professional educator, fromselection to induction into teaching. The story that unfolds in thecollaboration of the University of Connecticut and several schoolsis one of redesigning virtually every component into somethingquite different from what existed before without stopping thetraffic of future teachers from crossing the bridge topractice." --from the Foreword by John I. Goodlad, codirector, Center forEducational Renewal, University of Washington, and president,Institute for Educational Inquiry This practical volume redefines teaching as a profession withpronounced service and moral dimensions. The Professional Teachershows how this new paradigm can be instilled in teacher educationprograms and in teaching practice. The authors argue that thepractice of teaching requires much more than knowledge andtechnical competence. It calls for reflection and inquiry, adedication to democratic principles, and a strong commitment toeducational renewal and change. The authors reveal how teachereducation can be structured to emphasize the moral and serviceresponsibilities of the profession--especially by forging closeties with local schools and communities--to produce caring andeffective teachers. Richly illustrated with research and real-lifeexamples of good practice, The Professional Teacher proposes a newstandard that focuses on preparing teachers for a climate of schoolrenewal and change.
