Teaching practicum for secondary school student-teachers: a model for the National University of Lesotho (NUL) Lefoka, Pulane Julia
This study takes as its point of departure the need to reform teaching practicum at the National University of Lesotho. It examines the literature devoted to the teaching practicum, identifying and appraising various models for the teaching practicum, and extracting principles for the conduct of the teaching practicum. The principles developed are then applied to the development of a framework for the teaching practicum at the National University of Lesotho. The study recommends a reflective inquiry approach in which student-teachers undertake a supervised teaching practicum and an induction year based upon a combination of Schon's model of a reflective teaching practicum and Zeichner's inquiry oriented teacher education.
