Wolfgang Althof, Marvin Berkowitz, Virginia Navarro Co-Authors on Book Chapter
Teachers College Press will publish an edited volume, The Moral Work of Teaching and Teacher Education: Preparing and Supporting Practitioners (June, 2013), (Eds) Matthew N. Sanger & Richard D. Osguthorpe, that includes a chapter titled What Are We Trying to Achieve? Developing a Framework for the Preparation of Character Educators, written by COE faculty members Wolfgang Althof, Marvin Berkowitz, and Virginia Navarro along with David Shields. The chapter elaborates a model of character educator competencies (knowledge, skills, and dispositions), and reflects on the ways such competencies can be nurtured through infusing relevant and coordinated readings, assignments, and activities into multiple dimensions of the pre-service teacher education curriculum. In April, the various chapter authors will present their work at a symposium at the American Education Research Association 2013 meeting in San Francisco.
