Images Reveal the "Internal Dialogue" of Realistic Teacher Education. A Script for the Videotaped Presentation with References and Bibliography.
McGovern, Martha W.
F. A. Korthagen and J. P. A. Kessels (1999) advocate the adoption of the realistic approach for teacher education. The realistic approach provides developing teachers with experiences that call into question the adequacy of their beliefs. When the developing teachers are in a state of flux, the approach both supports reflection for refined perception and offers relevant conceptual knowledge for increased awareness and decision-making power. One preservice teacher was enrolled in such a realistic teacher preparation program and participated in a study which used George Kelly's (1963) repertory grid technique and complementary methods to reveal the "internal dialogue" (J. Goodman, 1988) of belief change. This narrative account traces the preservice teacher's paradigm shift from an authoritarian stance to an authoritative stance that acknowledged the possibility of a complete facilitator role.
