Preservice Teachers' Reflections of Their Involvement in a Home-School Connection Project in Teacher Education
Amaro-Jiménez, Carla
Bilingual Research Journal, v39 n1 p69-85 2016
Many future teachers have had little guidance on how to develop and foster home-school connections, especially when working with culturally and linguistically diverse families. This qualitative action research study aimed to identify what two different groups of preservice teachers enrolled in methods for teaching English learners courses (104 participants) perceived to be the gains of having participated in a semester-long home-school connection project as part of their teacher preparation program. The study also sought to identify what these preservice teachers indicated they will do to foster such connections in their own future classrooms. Suggestions for teacher preparation programs are provided in the manuscript.
