Emerging Professional Identities: Attitude Changes of Secondary Education Student Teachers.
Parkay, Forrest W.
The relationship between the student teaching experience and attitude changes was investigated. Twenty-six student teachers and 41 control-group students responded to a Teaching Attitude Questionnaire both before and after field experience. This questionnaire assessed attitudes toward teaching, levels of anxiety, and imagined feelings as a teacher. An analysis of the resulting data is presented. Findings indicated that, while student teachers become more professionally confident, they do so through developing styles of teaching that tend to be more self-concealing, restrictive, and custodial. A copy of the questionnaire used in the study is appended. (Author/JD)
