Teacher as "Shape-Shifter": Exploring the Intersection of New Times and the Teaching of English Language Arts
Hallman, Heidi L.
Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, v22 n3 p282-293 2015
This article explores how the current era in which we live, "New Times," a term used to characterize the changing social, economic, and technological conditions of our current era, both affords and constrains the identities of future teachers. The case of Anna Cunningham, a pre-service English language arts teacher, is highlighted as a portrait of the intersection of New Times with teacher identities rooted in content/disciplinary affiliations. Findings suggest the beginning teachers in New Times become adept at negotiating multiple, and sometimes divergent, teacher identities. This negotiation becomes a primary tool in responding to a changing notion of what is means to teach English language arts.
