The Influence of Teacher Education on Mentor Teachers’ Role Perception in Professional Development Schools
This article examines the influence of the pre-service training on mentor teachers’ role perception in the Professional Development Schools (PDS). The perceptions of the mentor teachers were examined regarding the influence of their teacher education as student teachers on their role perception in the PDS, and whether a difference exists between the perceptions of mentor teachers who were trained to teach via different approaches. The opinions of the pedagogical instructors were also examined, regarding their opinion on the difference between the role performance of Locals and Newcomers. The findings reinforce the fact that preparing mentor teachers is important, especially, if they mentor in a different context from that with which they were once familiar when students themselves.

A national professional development (PD) framework was developed for the implementation of science standards published by the Israeli Ministry of Education, which was activated before introduction of the standards into the classroom.

The findings reveal that seniority in teaching helped in implementation, even though veteran teachers usually find it more difficult to accept change.
