Abstract

In this chapter we go back to the group of students we introduced in Chapter 7. This small group of seven students was enrolled in an alternative Professional Experience unit offered to secondary teacher education students at the University of Western Sydney (UWS).This alternative practicum, Professional Experience Three, or PE3, was designed to give students an experience of learning to be teachers outside the institutional and bureaucratic constraints of school classrooms.
