Teachers' (re)Constructions of Knowledge: The Other Side of Fieldwork.
Reyes, Xae Alicia
Journal of Latinos and Education, v2 n1 p31-37 2003

Teacher education programs must provide meaningful field experiences. More community involvement during field placements, collaborations between academics and host communities, and validation of insider narratives would help preservice teachers construct factual knowledge about Latino students.
