Students' Advice to Prospective Middle School Teachers: Learning from the Experiences of Future Students
Storz, Mark
Teacher Education and Practice, v16 n1 p71-83 Spr 2003
The voices of students, as they share their lived experiences in school, provide an often missing perspective in the preparation of new teachers. As part of a research study that examined students' views on their educational experiences, particularly on the types of teachers and pedagogical practices that they perceived to be most beneficial to their achievement in school, 100 seventh- and eighth-grade students were interviewed at two urban middle schools. Shared in this article are students' responses to one of the questions posed: "What advice would you give to college students that might help them become excellent middle school teachers?" The students provide important insights into the qualities and practices of teachers that help them achieve success in school. (Contains 1 note.)
