Preservice Practicum Teaching in Central Asia: A Positive Experience for both Worlds
Thomas, Patrick G.
Journal of Social Studies Research, v30 n1 p21-25 2006
Many of the colleges and universities in the United States have developed some form of study abroad programs to enable their students to receive a learning experience outside the continental United States. The desire to give my preservice teachers a study abroad experience unlike any other led me to explore many of the contacts I have made in Kazakhstan. The destination of the Republic of Kazakhstan has seen limited exploration by American students because of its newly independent status (it became independent from the Soviet Union in 1991), the language barrier (Kazakh is the national language with most of the population still speaking Russian as a daily language) and the remoteness of the country (located in the middle of Central Asia). This narrative describes the experiences of four pre-service interns form Georges.
