ABSTRACT

The purposes of this study are to examine the current status regarding educational practicum of pre-service special education teachers and to suggest the best possible trends in the future on that issues. For this study a survey was conducted with 176 senior year college students from 8 universities nationwide who have just completed their regular practicum. Overall, the current study found that the participants believe that their practicum is insufficient and limited. The results pointed out the preparation courses which are provided through university curriculum are not enough in terms of planning lessons and selections of educational methods and lesson goals based on their students' learning styles and intellectual levels. Finally, this study suggests the necessity of developing new models of comprehensive practicum programs which can be applied in our educational circumstances.
