Storying the Student Teaching Experience: Trying on Teaching Personae
Davis, Janine S.
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v86 n3 p121-124 2013
This article uses a narrative analysis approach to explore the stories of student teachers' experiences developing a teaching persona during student teaching. In keeping with the narrative format, the researcher presents the participants' stories in a first-person narrative. The participants had similar experiences in the realm of developing their teaching personae: two common themes included their ideal versus actual personae and past and present influences on personae. Findings indicate that pre-service teachers carefully consider their teaching personae and draw on various sources to construct the personae that they believe will be successful.
