A Personal Journey: TGfU Teacher Development in Australia and the USA
Light, Richard; Butler, Joy
Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, v10 n3 p241-254 Nov 2005
This paper examines teacher development of TGfU in teacher education programmes in Australia and the USA by taking a cross-sectional snapshot across a sequence covering the final two years of a teacher education programme in which TGfU is emphasised, and the first two years of teaching after graduating from the same programmes. It explores the interrelated nature of the pre-service teachers' prior dispositions toward PE teaching, their reasons for adopting TGfU and their experiences of TGfU teaching. Conducting this research in two distinctly different cultural and insitutional settings provides a means through which we also explore the situated nature of teacher education and the effect that different cultural and institutional settings might have on TGfU teacher development.
