Does a Year Make a Difference? The Classroom Management Practices of Primary Student Teachers before and after a One-Year Teacher Education Programme
Reupert, Andrea; Woodcock, Stuart
Emotional & Behavioural Difficulties, v20 n3 p265-276 2015
The purpose of this study was to examine primary student teachers' use, confidence and success in various classroom management strategies at the start and at the end of a one-year teaching programme and ascertain any significant differences between the two time periods. One hundred and twenty-four English primary student teachers were surveyed at both time periods. Student teachers indicate that they would employ mostly preventative and lower-level corrective strategies at the start and at the end of the programme. Over the one year there was a significant increase in the use, confidence and success of preventative and relatively more intrusive corrective strategies, while the use and confidence of lower-level corrective strategies remained the same. The study tentatively highlights the cumulative impact of a one-year teaching programme on some but not all classroom management skills.
