Teacher Training Programs: Toward Implementing a Naturalist Approach
Shapira-Lishchinsky, Orly
Curriculum and Teaching, v29 n2 p25-41 Sep 2014
This study aims to explore how the naturalist approach can be used to improve learning. 60 novice teachers were encouraged to provide a question on a topic in education that interested them. The data analysis was based on a qualitative methodology using ATLAS.ti 5.0. The findings indicated that most of the questions could be accounted for by a model that included the following four dimensions: 'student discipline,' 'student achievements,' 'student well-being' and 'relationship with parents.' The findings suggest that teacher training programs should consider using the naturalist approach as an integral part of their curriculum to promote meaningful learning.
