Puppets and Puppeteers: External Mandates and the Instructional Practice of Two First-Year Teachers
Bengtson, Ed; Connors, Sean P.
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v9 n2 p128-152 Oct 2014
This longitudinal study examined how the approach leaders in two schools took to implementing the Common Core State Standards shaped the way that two first-year teachers constructed meaning related to being a teacher. Instructional leadership constructs and threat rigidity theory were used to analyze qualitative data gathered over a nine-month period. Findings indicate that the way schools as organizations respond to external mandates can influence the way that beginning teachers conceptualize, and approach, their work in the classroom.
