Shadowing, "The Most Valuable Thing You Can Do": Threading Informal Classroom Experiences into Secondary Pre-Service Teacher Education
Wilks, Judith; Ross, Katharine
Teacher Education Quarterly, v41 n2 p93-106 Spr 2014
This article describes a venture that arose out of an exciting opportunity for a partnership between a regional university's school of education and an exceptional local high school in Coffs Harbour, New South Wales (NSW), Australia. It presents the findings of a continuous program of "shadowing" by pre-service teachers of mentor teachers in schools throughout the university teaching session, and the authors' and students' experiences and reflections about this very successful program.
