"I Am a Pibidiana": Societal Relations as the Locus of Sustained Development in a Teacher Education Program in Brazil
El Kadri, Michele Salles; Roth, Wolff-Michael
Australian Journal of Teacher Education, v38 n5 Article 7 May 2013
Many teachers point to the theory-practice gap between university training and their school-based work. Coteaching in conjunction with cogenerative dialoguing as a means of teacher induction has been shown to overcome this gap. In this paper, we articulate teacher development in the praxis-centered (coteaching/cogenerative dialoguing) setting of one Brazilian teacher education program in terms of changing societal relations. We draw on Vygotskij, Leont'ev, and Dewey's ideas on development. The results exhibit the experience of teaching generally and the extant societal relations specifically as the condition for teacher development. Implications for teaching education programs are discussed.
