Relationships of New Teachers’ Beliefs and Instructional Practices: Comparisons Across Four Countries
This study investigates the relationship between new teachers' beliefs about instruction and teaching practices. It also discusses some possible reasons for the relationships between teacher beliefs and teacher practices within national and international contexts. To examine the relationships between new teachers’ beliefs and their instructional practices, the authors selected new teachers in four OECD countries including Hungary, Korea, Norway, and Turkey. The findings showed that the instructional practices of new teachers from the four selected countries were neither consistent nor aligned with their beliefs about instruction. One of the reasons for this result may be that new teachers’ self-reported instructional practices might differ significantly from their actual performance.

The purpose of this study was to identify and explore the challenges that new secondary teachers experienced in the implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The challenges include lack of preparedness for teaching CCSS, needs for understanding the CCSS language, the content in the standards, student learning, and the lack of resources. New teachers also reported challenges in collaboration with veteran teachers. They suggested that a collaborative learning community help them implement CCSS effectively. The collaboration should involve collaborative activities through peers, among school administration and teachers, online collaboration, and training workshops.

The authors developed the practicum-based microteaching model based on the notion of 'approximations of practice' to explore how the concept provides meaningful opportunities for preservice teachers' teacher learning in a general secondary methods course. The results reveal that the practicum-based microteaching model provided preservice teachers with opportunities for interactive learning practices, for rehearsal, revision, and retrial, and for manageable chunking of professional practices. Moreover, this study also found that preservice teachers well accepted the learning tasks such as planning and teaching a microlesson as manageable chunks of professional practices in teacher education.

Results showed statistically significant differences between the groups of teachers in their perceptions of appropriateness of teacher self-disclosure in three dimensions. This study makes an excellent contribution to the theoretical framework of the study of teacher self-disclosure and also provides implications for teaching and teacher education.
