Views on Values Education: From Teacher Candidates to Experienced Teachers
Iscan, Canay Demirhan
Education, v136 n2 p192-210 Win 2015
This study aimed to identify the views of experienced class teachers and class teacher candidates on values education. It conducted standard open-ended interviews with experienced class teachers and teacher candidates. The study group comprised 9 experienced class teachers from different socio-economic levels and 9 teacher candidates with different academic achievement levels. Data obtained through the interviews were analyzed descriptively. The views of teachers from three different regions and teacher candidates with different academic achievement levels were compared within themselves and with each other. It was found that teacher candidates focused on both their teaching practice and the knowledge they gained in their education, and class teachers gave responses in accord with their experiences. However, the responses of class teachers were about external elements with regard to values education.
