Teacher Education and Practice, v24 n1 p9-29 Win 2011
This study explored the use of video lesson modules in a teaching methodology course to prepare preservice teachers for supporting the English-language development of pupils at K-8 schools. The basic material of a lesson module is a video lesson featuring instruction of an experienced classroom teacher in an English-language development setting of a local school district. A total of 112 preservice teachers, enrolled in a teaching methodology course of two consecutive semesters, participated in this study. After the participants used the lesson modules as part of the methodology course required in the credential program, they provided feedback by completing a survey. Both qualitative and quantitative data were collected to analyze the quality of utilizing the video lessons in preservice professional development. Results indicate that high reliability exists in the application of the materials for different groups of participants who admitted benefiting the most in application of English-language development instructional strategies.
