Understanding teaching through the minds of teacher candidates: a curious blend of realism and idealism
TATE Volume 20, Number 6, ISSN 0742-051X Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
This study identifies candidate's teaching concerns and teacher role beliefs and examines the relationship between such concerns and beliefs prior to candidate entry into a teacher education program. Results revealed three areas of concerns that a “teacher” must overcome; concerns about pupils, teaching situation issues, and survival concerns. Findings are examined within a developmental framework in an effort to better understand their potential impact on candidates’ subsequent development.
