9780131791251: Case Stories for Elementary Methods: Meeting the INTASC Standards

 

            “We believe that our educational system must guarantee a learning environment

            in which all children can learn and achieve their own kind of individually configured

            excellence — an environment that nurtures their unique talents and creativity;

            understands, respects, and incorporates the diversity of their experiences into the

            learning process; and cultivates their personal commitment to enduring habits of

            life-long learning.”  From http://www.ccsso.org INTASC 1992, Preamble

 

INTASC was formed to ensure that all our P-12 students have the same base of knowledge and also that all teachers must meet the same standards for licensing.  Recent reform such as the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 have brought the standards movement to the public eye.  This book was written to provide what is often the missing piece of teacher preparation coursework–real-life experiences.  Written in ten chapters with twenty cases, this supplementary methods text provides problem-based learning opportunities involving the use of authentic dilemmas and concerns.  The cases are open-ended and require critical thinking skills and analysis by the student. 

 

A theme of the book is that teachers are human beings who are confronted with all the problems of daily life.  Readers of this text are urged to read and analyze the case stories, not only with an eye to finding educational solutions, but also with a keen awareness of how the strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes, and lingering concerns of each teacher affect their daily performance.  What we must remember is that while standards may serve as practical guidelines, it is individuals who are accountable for carrying out ethically good actions.  This text aims to educate a new generation of teachers in how to find solutions to varying problems and make reflective decisions, and in so doing achieve their goal of educating their class to meet the standards of today.

From the Back Cover:

Case Stories for Elementary Methods: Meeting the INTASC Standards

By Sheila Dunn

 

This casebook encourages pre-service elementary teachers to think critically, analyze, and discuss INTASC-related topics such as diversity, assessment, motivation, and more. Within this concise text you will find twenty cases in ten chapters that mirror the ten principles of the INTASC standards of teaching.  The cases are open-ended to prompt discussion, brief enough to be covered in detail in a single class period, and self-contained so they may be used in any order.  Use this book alone or in conjunction with existing course materials to explore more deeply and prepare for the relevant and often controversial issues they will face as a teacher in today’s schools.

 

Features of this Text:  

  • Unique, open-ended cases allow for multiple plausible educational solutions and ample discussion.
  • A case matrix illustrates cases that overlap with topics in other chapters enabling instructors to use the book in any order that fits with the class schedule.
  • A brief history of case-based instruction and elaboration on the responsibilities of students in preparing for case-based discussions opens the book.
  • The following pedagogical elements are present with each case:
    • A helpful mnemonic strategy (DEEPS) to guide students in their analysis of each case; this is a five-step method that prepares students for in-depth discussion of the case.
    • “What the Research Says” section follows each case and provides current research related to the issues in the case and helps students to better understand the complexities of each case.
    • Exploring the Issues feature provides an opportunity for students to broaden their understanding of the case; students may be asked to participate in activities such as writing a lesson plan, observing in a classroom, visiting a virtual classroom, or reviewing related research.
