Pre-Service Teachers' Perceptions of Teaching after Concurrent Service-Learning Training and Engagement
Stewart, Trae
Metropolitan Universities, v20 n2 p154-170 2009
This article presents the findings from a study on the impact of concurrent service-learning pedagogical training and service-learning engagement on pre-service teachers' perceptions of teaching and inclination toward using service-learning. Findings reveal that experiential activities in which pre-service teachers can engage in real classrooms in real capacities can open their eyes to realities of teaching, bolster their confidence, inform them about good/bad practices, and remind them that students are key to a conducive learning environment. Findings were not attributed explicitly to prospective teachers' participation in service-learning, however.
