Hausfather S. (2001) Where’s the content? The role of content in constructivist teacher education. Educational Horizons 80(1): 15–19. Fulltext at
Constructivism has become the reigning paradigm in teacher education in America today. More and more teacher education programs portray themselves as following a constructivist approach (Richardson, 1997), but there remains limited understanding among teachers and the public of the meaning of constructivism. Recently constructivism has come under attack from con-servative elements who view it as too focused on empowerment, and from educators who view it as soft on content (Baines and Stanley, 2000). A deeper understanding of constructivism and the role of content in constructivist teaching is needed by both teacher educators and K-12 teachers in order to fulfill the constructivist promise of improved student learning.
