Conveying Respect and Empathy: Becoming a Relational Teacher Educator
Kitchen, Julian
Studying Teacher Education, v1 n2 p195-207 Nov 2005
This is the second of two self-studies of my efforts to prepare preservice teachers for the practical realities of the classroom while being respectful of their personal practical knowledge. I coined the term "relational teacher education" to convey my approach, which is informed by Rogers' "helping relationships" and Hollingsworth, Dybdahl, and Minarik's "relational knowing." In this paper, I share "A Letter to Preservice Teachers" before exploring the final four characteristics of relational teacher education: respect and empathy, conveying respect and empathy, helping preservice teachers face problems, and receptivity to growing in relationship.
