Gek, Chua Kwee
Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, v28 n1 p1-24 2005
What do pre-service teachers learn from their observation stint during school experience attachment? This paper will present insights into the cognitive contents of the pre-service teachers' reflection log. Preliminary analyses revealed that different cultures and pedagogical practices were observed to be in operation in different school contexts. This paper will discuss the teacher trainees' perspectives of their experiential learning and critical reflection during their school experience. It will present a retrospective analysis of the subjects' reflective thoughts on the following aspects that they had observed: their cooperating teachers' practices in class, the running of the school organization, setting their own goals and the charting of their own development as trainee teachers.
