Preservice Teachers' Expectations about the First Year of Teaching.
Weinstein, Carol S.
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v4 n1 p31-41 1988
The possible sources of preservice teachers' unrealistic job expectations (that they will encounter few difficulties) were studied. By applying ideas developed in a study of "unrealistic optimism," a framework for such an analysis is given and the findings of an initial study of 118 students are reported. (JL)
