Pre-Student Teaching Experiences in Second Language Teacher Education Programs. CAL-ERIC/CLL Series on Languages and Linguistics, No. 14.
Jorstad, Helen L.
This paper discusses the need for and importance of field-based experiences in the training of prospective second language teachers prior to student teaching. Several types of field-based experiences are described: (1) experiences actually based on schools, including observation and participation; (2) teaching experiences based on the college or university campus with high school pupils or college students; (3) introduction to classroom experience through the use of videotape recordings, and (4) practice-teaching programs in other countries. Sixteen characteristics of an effective program for training second-language teachers are described, and the need for more research in the area of second language field-based experiences is emphasized.
