Elementary Teacher Utilisation of Service Learning as Methodology during Student Teaching Placements
Wasserman, Kathleen B.
Issues in Educational Research, v20 n1 p64-75 2010
Many universities around the world are using service learning in courses to enhance their students' mastery of course content and commitment to social justice. Teacher education faculties have additionally experimented with service learning as a way of providing authentic field experiences at inner city schools for their teacher candidates. This study explores a different version of service learning--teacher candidates' uses of service learning as a teaching methodology during their student teaching placements. (Contains 2 tables and 3 figures.)
