The Challenge and Perspective about the Studies of Teaching Practice in Japan
The purpose of this study is to review the challenge and perspective about previous studies of teaching practice in Japan. The findings of this study were as follows: 1) The curriculum for teacher training promoted the reform for teaching practice after the 1990's. 2) The pre-service teachers and the in-service teachers have recognized that the teaching practice is important because the competency as a teacher is developed, 3) The teaching practice and the contact activities that compliment teaching practice influence professional development as a teacher. Finally, in the study of teaching practice in the future, it is necessary to examine the difference and the similarity between the meaning of teaching practice recognized for pre-service teachers who have experienced teaching practice and that of teaching practice for in-service teachers reflected on the past concerning those experiences, and to examine the relation among development of competency of pre-service teacher, advisory instruction of cooperating teacher, and organizational climate and culture.
