Learning to Teach Social Studies: A Case Study of Belief Restructuring.
Angell, Ann V.
Theory and Research in Social Education, v26 n4 p509-29 Fall 1998
Probes the interaction between teacher-education experiences and existing student beliefs, through observation and analysis of two elementary teaching candidates' experience in social studies methods courses and student teaching. Suggests that beliefs can facilitate professional growth if articulated as tools for reflection, but can be obstacles to new conceptualizations of teaching. (DSK)
