Revisiting Teaching Archetypes: Identifying Dominant Shaping Influences on Student Teacher's Identities
Sugrue, Ciaran
European Educational Research Journal, v3 n3 p583-602 2004
The primary aim of this article is to identify and interrogate the lay theories of contemporary student teachers and to indicate and illustrate the manner in which these "theories" manifest both continuity and change when contrasted with teaching archetypes and previously articulated lay theories of student teachers in the setting. It is in five parts. First, a theoretical lens of teaching archetypes and lay theories is provided. Second, a succinct account of the changing educational and policy context is provided. Third, data generation and analysis are described. Fourth, emergent cultural themes are critically analysed. Fifth, some tentative implications are drawn for initial teacher education and further research. (Contains 2 notes.)
