© Scordias & Morris, 2005 Purpose of Project: Learning Principles To better prepare preservice teachers To teach successfully in diverse urban settings. To implement a socio-cultural perspective that uses collaboration and directed learning to integrate theory with practice. To accelerate the movement of novice to expert by seeing and reasoning using the expert’s eye. –(Bradsford, 2000)
© Scordias & Morris, 2005 Traditional Observations Observation process –Individuals or pairs are assigned observation in K-12 school (For example 10 hours over the course of the semester.) –Write analysis of observation Concerns by faculty about the process –Difficulty scheduling 200 preservice teachers / semester –Ensuring quality teaching occurs in observation –Accessing diverse settings
© Scordias & Morris, 2005 Problems of Learning Validity of interpretation –Prior experience: Filter of the experience –Lack of context: The meaning attributed to what we do perceive Connection of theory to practice Isolated construction of new knowledge
© Scordias & Morris, 2005 Discussion of Improvements Which has precedence in the observational procedures - form or function –Issues related how the activity (observation) is able to be conducted –Issues related to why the activity (observation) is being conducted
© Scordias & Morris, 2005 Factors in Decision Making FORM Scheduling The school environment Introduction to the classroom Permissions FUNCTION Learning to notice Interpretation Constructing new knowledge Feedback Connecting theory to practice
