Eren, Altay; Tezel, Kadir Vefa
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v26 n7 p1416-1428 Oct 2010
This study aimed to examine the mediating role of prospective English teachers' future time perspectives in relation to their motivations for teaching, beliefs about the profession, career choice satisfaction, and professional plans. A total of 423 prospective English teachers voluntarily participated in the study. The mediating role of the future time perspective was investigated through correlation, regression, and structural modeling analyses. Results showed that the prospective teachers' future time perspectives played a significant mediating role in relationships among planned effort, planned persistence, ability, intrinsic career value, making social contribution, and career choice satisfaction. (Contains 1 figure and 6 tables.)
