Teacher Education

Christou, Theodore Michael and Shawn Michael Bullock (2013).  “Foundations in Teacher Education:  A Canadian Perspective.” Ottawa:  Canadian Association for Teacher Education

Teacher education is engulfed in something of a seismic shift. Foundations scholars – defined here in disciplinary terms, which encompass History, Philosophy, and Sociology of Education – have been feeling the ground shift beneath their feet for years. This book offers reflections from each of the three disciplines and from all regions of the country. The authors here were asked to respond to the following question: “What role should foundations play in Canadian preservice teacher education?” The responses are organized disciplinarily, although there is tremendous overlap between the sections.
