Waters, Stewart; Russell, William B., III
Journal of Education, v194 n2 p45-54 2014
This study investigated the personal teaching efficacy and general teaching efficacy for character education of 130 preservice secondary teachers at a large university where there were no formal courses dedicated to character education, but the topic was included in some of the content coursework. The subjects were in one teacher education program preparing to teach language arts, science, social studies, and mathematics. The study utilized the "Character Education Efficacy Belief Instrument"; the findings provide insight into the efficacy beliefs of secondary preservice teachers in a teacher preparation program in a state that mandates character education.
