The Effects of the "Role Reversal Approach" on Teacher Training Models
Walter, Ofra
Support for Learning, v25 n3 p122-130 Aug 2010
The purpose of this article is to present early childhood educators, college pedagogical instructors and kindergarten teachers with the idea of using movement education activities as a means of teaching basic concepts in different disciplines. The programme consists of college courses that included the new approach (RRA--Role Reversal Approach) in movement education. This was integrated into the kindergarten curriculum and into the academic course. This new approach to the educational programme was used during the training process of pre-service kindergarten student teachers. Based on a previous study I assumed that RRA would contribute to the relationships among participants, and through this contribute to learning and teaching processes in early childhood. The results indicated that the integration of the new RRA enhances the use of movement education by student teachers and training teachers in teaching basic concepts in early childhood and special educational needs.
