The Impact of an Immersion Experience in Alaskan Native Community Cultural Life on Pre-Service Teachers
Boylan, Colin R.; Munsch, Ted R.
Education in Rural Australia, v17 n1 p71-81 2007
This paper reports on the changes in understandings and appreciations of pre-service elementary (K-8) teacher education students who participated in a week-long cultural immersion experience in Alaska Native communities and their schools. For this group of pre service teachers, the experience developed new and deeper understandings about the challenges and realities of living and teaching in rural Alaska Native community schools. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)
