Does Student Teaching Matter? Investigating Pre-service Teachers’ Sense of Efficacy and Preparedness
This study aimed to investigate how student teaching experiences impact the sense of teaching efficacy and feelings of preparedness of pre-service teachers in a nearly and elementary teacher education program. Findings indicate that pre-service teachers’ perceptions of preparedness and sense of teaching efficacy both increased significantly from pre-student teaching to post-student teaching. In addition, three themes emerged from the answers to open-ended questions on learning components of student teaching experiences: opportunity for hands-on teaching, the opportunity to observe experienced teachers, and the relationship with their cooperating teacher.
