Abstract

Student teachers' making practices at schools with the aim of preparing for the teaching profession in the school environment while educational processes are going on is a method having been approved and practiced all along in the teacher training programs. Intended for the development of the teacher training in Turkey, the Education Faculties were reconstructed between the years of 1994-1998 within the framework of the "HEC/ World Bank National Education Development Project Pre-Service Teacher Training" project, and since 1998, a common program has been in use in all the education faculties in the country. In the direction of this program, in addition to the Teaching Practice course included in the previous programs, the School Experience course was put into effect in order to have teacher trainees get accustomed to the school environment and to lengthen the time that they will spend at schools.
