The development of student teachers' views on pupil misbehaviour during an initial teacher training programme in England and Norway
The article discusses questionnaires filled out by postgraduate student teachers at the start and the end of teacher training courses in York (England) and Stavanger (Norway). The questionnaires explored the student teachers' views regarding student misbehavior, frequency of student misbehavior and strategies for dealing with misbehavior. In addition, the postgraduate students were asked about their confidence that as full time teachers they will develop the skills to deal with misbehavior in the classroom. The article outlined major factors accounting for misbehavior, and areas where there appear to be shifts in students' views over the course of their training year and differences between the students across the two settings (York and Stavanger).
