Using Participatory Action Research to Prepare Teacher Candidates for 21st Century Schools
Physical education teacher education (PETE) programs must be responsive to the continuously changing contexts of public schools. The experiences of preservice teachers can provide key insight into the effectiveness of PETE programs to meet the challenges of 21st century schools. Photovoice, a participatory action research (PAR) methodology, was used to examine preservice teachers’ perceptions of preparedness for the practicum experience. The results of this study highlight the potential of Photovoice to catalyze programmatic change.
