Through the Looking-Glass: Preservice Teachers Find Their Voices.
Peters, William H.
Using Alice's experience in "Through the Looking Glass" as inspiration, this paper recounts how preservice teachers journey through their field-based experiences and gain increasing insights into the teaching profession. The paper illustrates their progression with notes from several reflective logs which will eventually become papers for a methods course. According to the paper, for one female student teacher the decision to become a secondary school English teacher was arrived at after coming to an understanding of "self" in school settings. The paper takes a male student from the first week of his log through the thirteenth week and concludes with the voice of another female preservice teacher who finds it exciting to think of participating more fully in the development of high school students as learners and as human beings.
