The effects of teacher preparation on student teachers' ideas about good

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Utilizing a mixed method approach, this study focuses on the perceptions of good teaching held by graduates of a teacher education program in the U.S. Specifically, this paper examines whether graduates embrace their program's vision of good teaching and core standards as a guide to their self-reported teaching practice. Six cohorts of graduates' responses were recorded and analyzed upon arrival and completion of preparation to examine whether students' ideas changed during the course of the program. Findings suggest mixed results suggesting that teachers adopted several ideas about good teaching that are related to the core standards of the program (e.g., collaborating with a colleague, encouraging risk taking, and asking open-ended questions).
