Martinez, Maria A.; Sauleda, Narcis; Huber, Guenter L.
Teaching and Teacher Education, v17 n8 p965-77 Nov 2001
Spanish researchers compared the types of metaphors for teaching and learning generated by experienced and preservice teachers. Analysis of the metaphors indicated that few teachers conceived of teaching and learning as a social process. Behaviorist metaphors predominated among experienced teachers, while preservice teachers had a high number of metaphors related to cognitive/constructivist ideas. (SM)
