From Student-Athlete to Student-Teacher: A Case Study of One Student's Journey
Caniglia, Joanne; Pellegrino, Christine
Journal of Case Studies in Education, v6 Sep 2014
The purpose of this study was to investigate and describe patterns of behavior that a student-athlete not only exhibits during athletic competition, but also transfers from the soccer field to the college classroom and to the teaching profession. Using journals, lesson plans, teaching commentaries, videos, and interviews, a qualitative case study of an NCAA Division I soccer player revealed an in-depth understanding of the complex nature of a student-athlete/student teacher's daily life. The findings of this study suggest that there are many parallels between the skills acquired while a student participated in sports and her student teaching experiences. Common themes that appeared to transfer to the classroom included time-management/organization skills, person-centered priorities, goal obtainment, and problem solving strategies.
