THE CHILDHOOD ROMANCE THEORY OF TEACHER DEVELOPMENT.
TUSKA, SHIRLEY A.; WRIGHT, BENJAMIN D.
EXPLORATION OF PERSONALITY ORIENTATIONS ASSOCIATED WITH THE GRADE LEVEL AT WHICH THE PROSPECTIVE TEACHER INTENDS TO TEACH INQUIRED INTO CHILDHOOD RECOLLECTIONS. 508 WOMEN ENROLLED IN 12 TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAMS COMPLETED A LOCALLY DEVELOPED SEMANTIC DIFFERENTIAL QUESTIONNAIRE. THOSE INTENDING TO TEACH AT LOWER SCHOOL LEVELS IDENTIFIED WITH THEIR FATHERS, PERCEIVED MOTHER AS AN ENVIED (BUT NOT FEARED) RIVAL, AND TEACHER AS BOTH RIVAL AND ENEMY. THOSE INTENDING TO TEACH AT SECONDARY SCHOOL LEVEL IDENTIFIED POSITIVELY WITH THEIR MOTHERS, AND PERCEIVED TEACHER AS THE BELOVED HERO TO EMULATE. FATHER WAS PERCEIVED AS ENEMY RIVAL. "TO HAVE" AND "TO BE" ARE DISCUSSED AS THE TWO BASIC ORIENTATIONS TO LIFE THAT HAVE IMPLICATIONS FOR TEACHER PLACEMENT. "TO HAVE" INVOLVES UNDERSTANDING AND PARTICIPATING TEACHER BEHAVIORS WHILE "TO BE" INVOLVES RESOURCEFULNESS AND INDEPENDENCE BEHAVIORS. IT IS SUGGESTED THAT ELEMENTARY TEACHERS DOMINATED BY A "TO HAVE" ORIENTATION WOULD BENEFIT FROM A GREATER "TO BE" ORIENTATION, WHILE THE REVERSE IS TRUE OF SECONDARY TEACHERS. THIS DOCUMENT APPEARED IN "THE SCHOOL REVIEW," SUMMER 1967, 75, 123-154. (RP)
