The Development of Preservice Teachers’ Self-Efficacy for Classroom and Behavior Management Across Multiple Field Experiences
This study explored the development of preservice special education teachers’ self-efficacy for classroom and behaviour management as they progressed through a four-semester professional development sequence. Findings indicated that although self-efficacy levels were variable across semesters, statistically significant changes in group self-efficacy levels were noted when compared to beginning levels. Despite noted increases in self-efficacy levels, participants continued to express a need for training in evidence-based practices and strategies for addressing extreme behaviours. Implications and limitations are discussed.

The article develops insights from Woodruff’s book (2001),'Reverence: Renewing a Forgotten Virtue' to discuss reverence in teaching. The purpose of the article is to understand spiritual dimensions of teaching by elucidating the cardinal and forgotten virtue of reverence. The study considers how the virtue of reverence is supported by appropriate classroom ritual and ceremony and discusses several examples of reverence and irreverence in classroom teaching. The authors conclude that to be reverent is to realize that we as humans are limited and imperfect, and the proper reaction to this state is humility, awe, and wonder.
