A Practical Inquiry: Influencing Preservice Teachers' Beliefs toward Diversity and Democracy.
Adler, Susan; Confer, B. J.
This qualitative study examined how a methods class focusing on beliefs about teaching for democracy in a diverse society influences the beliefs and pedagogical decision making of a group of preservice teachers. This inquiry, a 2-year study of preservice social studies teachers, encompassed their social studies methods course, student teaching experience, and first year of employment as teachers. Specifically, researchers looked at beliefs and actions toward student diversity, teaching "others," and teaching social studies aimed at enabling young people to be informed participants in a democratic society. Contains 3 tables and 18 references. Appended is the course syllabus. (BT)
