Description


Self-Study for Teacher Educators: Crafting a Pedagogy for Educational Change brings the topic of self-study to the teacher education classroom. Anastasia P. Samaras frames her own self-study with Vygotskian theory. Her stories of her life as the daughter of immigrants raise important issues of race, ethnicity, class, and gender. She applies the insights of her self-study to her own pedagogy; the result is a cutting-edge pedagogy for the preparation of teachers. Samaras' model offers mentoring structures for teaching preservice teachers and a curriculum that prepares them for the realities of the classrooms they will enter. This book provides concrete suggestions for redefining the mentor, especially in the current context of the high attrition rate among new teachers.
