Assessed whether integrating classroom management and a Wednesday field experience would increase preservice teachers' knowledge and ability to connect theory with practice. Preservice elementary teachers wrote weekly reflections on topics they observed while in their assigned classrooms. The experience empowered most of them by helping them understand teaching theories and how they dictated classroom practice. All participants successfully used an Action Research Reflection Form to improve their knowledge of teaching. (SM)
