Can Prospective Teachers Be Autonomous Decision Makers?
Obando, Evangelina Diaz; And Others
The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of a middle grades mathematics teacher preparation program on prospective teachers' practice during their internship. Using qualitative data collected from students enrolled in this course, it was found that prospective teachers during their internship displayed a great deal of autonomy in creating nontraditional learning environments and negotiating with their supervising teachers.
