Abstract

The Professional Handbook is a teacher education assignment that endeavors to reduce the gap between theory and practice, increase preservice teachers' instructional technology skills, and foster active reading of required assignments. Originally implemented in a Social Studies Methods course, the assignment can be modified for other teacher preparation courses. The Handbook is a work in progress; an investigation about its usefulness for student teacher is planned for the 2006-2007 academic year. The rationale and framework for the assignment are described in this paper, as well as plans for future research about Handbook use among inservice teachers.
