Student teachers’ entering expectations of their program of initial teacher education
Kinchin, Gary (2011) Student teachers’ entering expectations of their program of initial teacher education. Educational Review (Submitted).
The views and beliefs held by entering student teachers can be shaped by their expectations of teaching and initial teacher education (Wideen et al., 1998). Whilst recent interest has investigated student teachers’ expectations (e.g. Hobson et al., 2006; Maldarez et al., 2007) little exists in physical education. This qualitative paper examines the entering expectations held by 24 PGCE secondary physical education student teachers. Participants discussed a range of expectations related to course content, structure and staffing. Student teachers should be encouraged to explore their expectations and consider which specific elements align with initial preconceptions concerning their teacher education.
