Oppositional Pairs: Unresolved Conflicts in Student Teaching.
Wiggins, Robert A.; Clift, Renee T.
Action in Teacher Education, v17 n1 p9-19 Spr 1995
This study analyzed two student teachers whose contradictory beliefs about teaching went unrecognized and unresolved and subsequently affected their professional growth. The study used interviews, observations, and student teacher journals to examine the nature of learning experiences. Results suggest implications for program administrators, supervisors, cooperating teachers, and student teachers. (SM)
