I spent some time teaching at a Faculty of Education here in Toronto and there was always a discussion among students (and some faculty members) as to whether or not they were prepared to enter full time practice after just one year of formal preparation. Many felt that more in-class practice was needed. Others thought that more "theory-based" instruction would be better. So, let me throw out a couple of questions. What aspects of teaching did you feel most prepared for when you graduated from your teacher education program? If you were to go back to your faculty professors and tell them about one area of practice that, perhaps, needed a little more attention, what would it be? Stephen
