Student Teaching: Perspectives, Opportunities and Challenges


Leon Jung (Editor)

Series: Education in a Competitive and Globalizing World
BISAC: EDU001000

Through the research examined in the opening chapter of Student Teaching: Perspectives, Opportunities and Challenges, the authors determine that it is necessary for elementary teacher candidates to be strengthened in the pedagogical level related to culturally responsive teaching during the undergraduate education process, and graduate as culturally responsive elementary teachers.

Next, a study is presented which investigates the effects of multiple intelligence practices on secondary school students’ environmental literacy levels. The results reveal that a learning environment enriched by multiple intelligence activities significantly improved the participants’ environmental literacy levels.

The final study explores three Andalusia universities (that are part of the 17 autonomous regions making up Spain) and how they regard the knowledge of prospective primary teachers in the area of metric geometry.
