F23 - Teaching Experience and Higher Education: Do Either Make a Difference in Knowledge of Basic Language Constructs Among Teacher Educators?

Oct 28, 2016 2:00pm ‐ Oct 28, 2016 3:00pm

Standard: $20.00


Research has shown that teachers often lack knowledge of basic language constructs related to phonological awareness, phonics instruction, and morphology. We have found that preservice teachers exhibit greater knowledge when they are taught by more knowledgeable teacher educators. If more knowledgeable teacher educators produce more knowledgeable teachers, then what produces more knowledgeable teacher educators? Does the amount of elementary teaching experience and/or level of higher education of the teacher educator make a difference? Findings and implications for practice in light of IDA's Knowledge and Practice Standards will be discussed.
