Social Studies Methods Students Engaged in Service-Learning: Reciprocity Is the Key
Wetig, Saundra
Educational Considerations, v34 n1 p32-34 Fall 2006
This author recognized that she needed to revisit her preservice teachers' practicum experience to reassess her goals, ideas, and priorities regarding how to provide a quality teaching and learning experience of her preservice teachers. As the author reflected on the practicum experience, she identified the missing link--reciprocity. The practicum served the purpose of engaging preservice teachers in a teaching/learning experience that advanced their skills, but it did not meet the needs of all stakeholders. In this article, the author describes her efforts to provide elementary preservice teachers with the opportunity to become active citizens through a methods course and practicum involving academic service-learning. (Contains 1 table and 11 endnotes.)
