Fostering Reflection through Challenging Practica
Nickel, Jodi; Sutherby, Linda; Garrow-Oliver, Susan
Journal of Early Childhood Teacher Education, v31 n1 p49-62 2010
This article describes challenging practicum situations that provided three early childhood education students with leadership opportunities to promote best practices in child care centers. Using excerpts from student journals and meetings, the article documents students' initial discouragement at practices observed, inspiration through involvement at an exemplary preschool, encouragement as positive changes emerged, and personal growth through self-assessment and reflection.
