Overview

Collaborative Action for Change examines new directions in the preparation of and lifelong professional development for music educators. Based on presentations from the symposium, chapters focus on successful partnerships and collaborations among music teacher educators, classroom teachers, school and district administrators, and others. Keynote addresses, given by Marilyn Cochran-Smith (Boston College) and Don Gibson (Florida State University), raise important questions in shaping and assessing preservice teachers' learning experiences and curricula. Other chapters discuss genuine interaction among preservice teachers, teacher educators, and the musics and cultures of their own and their students' worlds; beginning teachers' socialization and skill development; two effective university-school partnerships; a collaborative effort among university faculty; and different mentoring programs for novice and experienced music teachers. Collaborative Action for Change provides concrete visions of music educators taking individual and collective action for change in music teacher education.
