Focus on Identity Development: A Proposal for Addressing English Teacher Attrition
Hochstetler, Sarah
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v84 n6 p256-259 2011
Placing teacher identity work (e.g. thinking critically about what it means to be a teacher) late in the curriculum of education programs could contribute to the high attrition rate of secondary English teachers. This article argues for more attention to teacher identity development early in candidate coursework to better prepare them for the realities of the classroom and promote their success in the profession.
