African American Teacher Candidates' Experiences in Teaching Secondary Physical Education
Sato, Takahiro; Hodge, Samuel Russell
Journal of Teaching in Physical Education, v36 n1 p97-112 Jan 2017
The purpose of this study was to describe and explain the teaching experiences of African American physical education teacher candidates in secondary physical education programs at urban schools. The research design was explanatory multiple-case study situated in positioning theory (Harré & van Langenhove, 1999). The participants were seven African American physical education teacher candidates. The data sources were interviews, self-reflective journal logs, and e-portfolios. The data were analyzed using a constant comparative method (Boeije, 2010). The thematic findings were: (a) tacit positioning (unconscious and unintentional), (b) self--other discourse, and (c) reflective positioning. The study's findings offer additional empirical evidence that physical education teacher education programs must do more to better prepare teacher candidates for working in urban schools with greater cultural competency and higher self-efficacy.
