Abstract

Tribes is a process rather than a program per se in that aims to facilitate interactive learning via the engendering a positive classroom climate. Devised in the USA and imported into a number of contexts internationally, uptake in Australia has been considerable. Thirty second and third year Bachelor of Education students undertook the training hosted by Cooloongup Primary School, Western Australia, prior to participating in a ten week practicum. Data sets pertaining to Tribes as a resource were collected prior to the training phase, post training, and at the conclusion of the practicum. This paper reports the perceptions of students regarding the nature of Tribes as a resource, their participation in the training, and the value of Tribes training for practicum purposes.
