Obstacles to Professional Development: Interns' Desire to Fit in, Get Along, and Be Real Teachers.
Rikard, G. Linda; Knight, Sharon M.
Journal of Teaching in Physical Education, v16 n4 p440-53 Jul 1997
This study examined physical education interns' (N=46) perceptions about their internships as indicators of professional development. Focus groups and surveys indicated that the student teachers wanted to fit in, get along with teachers, and gain pupil cooperation. Constraints included difficulties establishing management systems, untimely supervision, and feeling estranged. Ability to resolve constraints directly affected self-image. (SM)
