Teacher Identity Construction in Different Contexts of Teacher Education in Brazil.
Diniz-Pereira, Julio Emilio
Considering current public policies for teacher education, recent educational reforms, and the renewed discussion of the teacher's role within contemporaneous approaches in the field of education, it is essential to discuss how teacher identity is gradually constructed in teacher education programs. This paper discusses processes of teacher identity construction through an analysis of two different teacher education programs that have emerged in Brazil in the last 2 decades. The first one is the official teacher education program, which has been considered a "top-down" conservative reform program. The second one is the teacher education program proposed by the Landless Workers' Movement, which has been considered a "bottom-up" progressive program. This analysis is an attempt to gain a better understanding of the multidimensional processes that influence people as they become educators through their entry into preservice programs under particular educational reform environments.
