Journal of College Science Teaching, v37 n6 p14-20 Jul 2008
Dubbed a "dialogue of life," community immersion in preservice science-teacher education aims at providing a true-to-life and empowering opportunity for prospective science teachers (both elementary and secondary) to become active participants in community life through field and service-learning experiences. It consists of a three-unit course with a field component wherein prospective science teachers live in a local community and immerse in the life-worlds of rural village people--their social, cultural, economic, and many other realities become the matrix for embedding science learning and activities. (Contains 1 table and 3 figures.)
