Please Mind the Culture Gap: Intercultural Development During a Teacher Education Study Abroad Program
This study explores a preservice teacher’s intercultural development over the course of a semester-long teacher education study abroad program in England. The preservice teacher experienced cultural dissonance during her immersion in the cultural context in England. Her immersion experience provided her with the opportunity to have the experience of being a cultural outsider. The authors conclude that such study abroad programs can be powerful vehicles in teacher educators’ efforts to prepare preservice teachers for work with culturally diverse students.
