Learning to Teach Reading: A Theory-Practice Approach to Psychology Teaching in University Teacher Education
Drechsel, Barbara; Breunig, Katharina; Thurn, Daniela; Basten, Johanna
Psychology Learning and Teaching, v13 n3 p250-259 Sep 2014
The report portrays a theory-practice psychology course on reading education in a German teacher education programme. Having completed a theoretical course phase that is largely based on knowledge from cognitive and educational psychology, pre-service student-teachers applied their acquired knowledge by working with a fifth-grader in five individual reading lessons. During the sessions, students were supported by a mentor and received individual video feedback as well as peer feedback. The students also kept a learning journal to document and reflect on their practical experiences. The results from a small-scale evaluation study suggest that the course format bears a high potential for meaningful learning experiences regarding both general teaching practice and reading instruction.
