What Can We Learn from Studying the Coaching Interactions between Cooperating Teachers and Preservice Teachers? A Literature Review

The authors identified 46 studies as meeting the criteria for inclusion. The analysis yielded fourteen findings with varying levels of support. The authors have grouped these findings for presentation purposes around four areas: current practices and conditions, innovations in practice, relationships and tensions and local contexts and teaching practices.

This study follows 12 preservice teachers who tutored adult students learning English in a free evening class while simultaneously taking a course titled Community Literacy. In particular, the authors examine how this context supported them in developing tools for teaching; and how those tools were shaped by and constructed these teachers’ identities. The authors used discourse analysis to examine three preservice teachers’ cases and their ideas about language acquisition, literacy teaching and learning, and teacher/student roles in a cross-cultural teaching setting. The authors conclude that the preservice teachers drew on the tools that come from mentor texts and their experiences, and also the tools that students brought, in unique ways.

Set in the context of a teacher education program, this study examined how three White pre-service teachers participate in book club discussions of children’s literature. The analysis illustrates that the participants held two questions, what constitutes racism and what makes a person a White ally, without firm resolution in the form and function of their talk. Their discourses illustrate that racial literacy involves what teachers say and also a willingness to stand in the space of indeterminacy, which may create space for new social positions.
