Dr. Jennifer Ashton, associate professor for Education and Human Development, and alum Hannah Arlington published an article in The International Journal of Whole Schooling. This paper is an analysis of service learning embedded in a pre-service teacher education course. This study examined changes in the teacher candidates’ understandings of disability and how this might influence their self-perceptions as future inclusive educators. Misconception, fear, presuming competence, and inclusion emerged as significant themes in the data. Findings indicated that service learning can be an effective means for inspiring change and transformation among future educators. Ms. Arlington is a graduate of the Inclusive Childhood Education Program and currently teaches in New York City.
Dr. Ashton and Ms. Arlington presented this work at the 2016 American Education Researchers Association (AERA) Annual Meeting in Washington, DC and this article represents the culmination of that work.
