|Other Titles:||Using Picture Books to Teach Prospective Teachers How to Manage Their Classrooms|
Department od Education, NTNU
This study explores the use of picture books to teach prospective teachers the necessary classroom management skills. In Taiwan's National Changhua University of Education, 90 students who were enrolled in a classroom management course participated in this qualitative action research. The data collected include students' portfolios, self-evaluations, final examinations and questionnaires. The researcher has found that: (1) education students like to read picture books and feel they can gain greater spiritual maturity from them; (2) students believe that picture books may help them to better understand adolescents' perspectives and feelings; (3) teaching with picture books is very effective as a form of“teaching without preaching,” so that students accept what they read from the bottom of their heart; (4) students affirm the educational value of pictures; (5) this teaching strategy guides students to be more open in their thinking and questioning, to construct multiple perspectives in a free and democratic climate, to gain pleasure as well as educational value from reading picture books; (6) practical learning is more effective than theoretical explanation.
