Teacher Empowerment and the Disappearing Act: Making Connections between Empowerment and Motivation.
Thresholds in Education, v17 n4 p8-10 Nov 1991
A teacher's identity is shaped by direct work with individual students, not by paperwork or competitive tasks. Teacher empowerment is grounded in teacher motivation, with emphasis on teacher-student relationships. Empowerment depends on relating new roles and decision-making tasks to classroom work, recognizing teachers for success with difficult students, and developing horizontal career ladders.
