Forms, Foci, and Forces - The Need for Overseas Pre-service Teacher Professional Experiences

Description:
This article uses narrative inquiry through the lens of responsive narratives of other researchers to examine the impact of an overseas professional teaching experience on 20 pre-service teachers. The study finds personal and professional growth greater than one might expect in a traditional domestic student-teaching placement. Major benefits include increases in genuine multicultural education, global mindedness, reflection, flexibility, commitment, and the development of personal identity.
