Pre-Service Teachers' Perceptions of International Faculty: A Case Study
Choi, Sheena; Hickey, M. Gail
Multicultural Education Review, v5 n2 p85-107 2013
Teacher education programs emphasize a need for intercultural understandings that facilitate K-12 classroom practice. This study explores pre-service teachers' attitudes and perspectives about intercultural education. Findings show pre-service teachers from Euro-American ethnic backgrounds voice support for intercultural understanding while remaining passively involved in diverse school and community settings. These findings underscore the importance of the roles international faculty and international courses play in exposing pre-service teachers to intercultural knowledge and understanding.
