Born To Be a Teacher: What Am I Doing in a College of Education?
Whitbeck, Duane A.
Journal of Research in Childhood Education, v15 n1 p129-36 Fall-Win 2000
Assessed education students' choice of teaching as a career, how they thought of themselves as teachers, and what they believed were the sources of their knowledge about teaching. Found a consistent belief in a "special calling" or "gift." Recommended more reflective teaching methods to help teaching students confront their skills and perceptions. (JPB)
