Abstract

Teacher education program naturally covers both theoretical and practical components. The theoretical component is aimed at expanding the pedagogic and professional horizons of student teachers; meanwhile, the practical component is aimed at providing student teachers with an in-depth exposure to real classroom settings. The latter – the practical component – which usually includes Micro Teaching and Teaching Practice is apparently needed as there ought to be practices to develop student teachers’ competencies. Student teachers who have carried out their Micro Teaching and Teaching Practice might have shaped their own nature of teaching. This study seeks to understand student teachers’ working principles of teaching in its own terms and in ways teaching is understood by student teachers. In other words, it explores student teachers’ voice – an insider’s perspective by scrutinizing their perspective of teaching hence a small component of teacher cognition. The three issues on how they view themselves as a teacher, how they see their role as a teacher in the classroom and what they consider as a successful teaching might in the long run reveal student teachers’ motivation for their decisions and actions – revealing somewhat implicit nature of teaching. Key words: Micro Teaching, nature of teaching, student teachers, teacher cognition. Teaching Practice, __________________________ *) An earlier version of this article was presented at The 6th International Seminar FBS-LTC Salatiga, Indonesia, on 21 November 2012.
