Teaming and Teaching in ECE: Neoliberal Reforms, Teacher Metaphors, and Identity in Head Start
Bullough, Robert V., Jr.
Journal of Research in Childhood Education, v29 n3 p410-427 2015
Noting that surprisingly little researcher attention has been directed toward teaming in early childhood education (ECE), the author conducted parallel case studies of two Head Start teacher teams in a single center. Drawing on interviews, extensive observational notes taken over the course of a school year, and teacher-generated metaphors, the cases are explored in relationship to a range of issues associated with teaming. Situated in self-determination theory and the three-component model of commitment, the cases are used to draw conclusions useful for rethinking approaches to teaming in ECE.
