Description - Rethinking Teacher Education by Anne Edwards
This text provides a critical and thorough analysis of the difficulties and opportunities that beset teacher education. The authors draw on philosophical, psychological and sociological perspectives and illustrate their points with a detailed mix of international examples. The book is usefully divided into three sections. The first focuses on the frameworks and themes that influence teacher education; the second provides an analysis of the political, economic and epistemological trends that collectively constitute what we call an age of uncertainty in teacher education; and the last discusses ways in which we can attempt to deal with this uncertainty. Each chapter ends with suggestions for seminars and further reading, and includes unique activities in which readers are prompted into making inter-disciplinary reflections on teacher education.
