Developing Personal Practical Knowledge in Early Childhood Teacher Education: The Use of Personal Narratives.
McLean, S. Vianne
This document reports on the use of personal narratives about teaching in early childhood preservice teacher education programs. The first part of the paper outlines a study which examined staff and student perceptions of the use of stories about teaching practice in a teacher education program in Brisbane, Australia. The second part of the paper examines a new Bachelor of Teaching program in the School of Early Childhood at the Queensland University of Technology (Australia), which used case study literature and provided students with direct contact with teachers in the field. It is concluded that, by using personal narratives about teaching, teacher educators can improve their ability to support students' efforts to become early childhood teachers. (MM)
