How can teacher educators provide prospective teachers with a philosophical foundation for dimensions of teaching associated with responsiveness to students? How can they help focus teacher candidates, during their through coursework and, especially, during clinical experiences, on developing their capacity to be responsive to students as unique human beings? Drawing from the literature base on teaching’s moral dimensions, this book establishes a conceptual framework for responsiveness, describes obstacles to its actualization, and suggests approaches for nurturing responsive capacities in teacher candidates. Voices of teacher candidates and teacher educators animate the conversation about responsiveness . Philosophy and practice are situated within the context of tensions between standardization and teachers’ commitments to remain true to the unique needs of students. The book provides multiple entry points for approaching the topic of responsiveness, including scholarly literature, qualitative data analysis, the author’s personal voice as a teacher educator, and the voices of other teacher educators and of teacher candidates discussing personal experiences, including successes and challenges within clinical experiences. Philosophy and practice are intertwined and practice-based interventions are suggested.

This book about teachers as characters in popular media examines what can be learned from fictional teachers for the purposes of educating real teachers. Its aim is twofold: to examine the constructed figure of the teacher in film, television and text and to apply that examination in the context of teacher education. By exploring the teacher construct, readers are able to consider how popular fiction and film have influenced society’s understandings and views of classroom teachers. Organized around four main themes—Identifying with the Teacher Image; Constructing the Teacher with Content; Imaging the Teacher as Savior; The Teacher Construct as Commentary—the chapters examine the complicated mixture of fact, stereotype and misrepresentation that create the image of the teacher in the public eye today. This examination, in turn, allows teacher educators to use popular culture as curriculum. Using the fictional teacher as a text, preservice—and practicing—teachers can examine positive and negative (and often misleading) representations of teachers in order to develop as teachers themselves.

In this book, Rodríguez uses theories of critical literacy and culturally responsive teaching to argue that our schools, and our culture, need sustaining and inclusive young adult (YA) literature/s to meet the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse readers and all students. This book provides an outline for the study of literature through cultural and literary criticism, via essays that analyze selected YA literature (drama, fiction, nonfiction, and poetry) in four areas: scribal identities and the self-affirmation of adolescents; gender and sexualities; schooling and education of young adult characters; and teachers’ roles and influences in characters’ coming of age. Applying critical literacy theories and a youth studies lens, this book shines a light on the need for culturally sustaining and inclusive pedagogies to read adolescent worlds. Complementing these essays are critical conversations with seven key contemporary YA literature writers, adding biographical perspectives to further expand the critical scholarship and merits of YA literature.
