In this study, the authors studied subject matter impact for professional vision (pv) in pre-service teachers.
The authors systematically investigated pre-service teachers’ professional vision as elicited by videos of various subjects.
Such a design allows studying the relevance of subject matter for professional vision.
The authors compared between professional vision of 32 math/science majors' and 56 social science/humanities majors.
The authors found evidence for different professional visions among pre-service teachers majoring in different fields; social sciences/humanities majors showed higher professional vision.
The authors conclude that subject-specific socializations may result in distinct sets of shared beliefs and values.
