The Teacher I Wish to Be: Exploring the Influence of Life Histories on Student Teacher Idealised Identities
Furlong, Catherine
European Journal of Teacher Education, v36 n1 p68-83 2013
This paper examines the influence of life histories and apprenticeship of observation on the formation of student teachers' idealised identities. The life histories of 15 student teachers are decoded. Through eliciting from the student teachers the teacher they wish to be, the paper focuses on the interplay between the personal histories and ideal teacher identities for the future. The implications of the findings for initial teacher education are considered. (Contains 1 table.)
