Focusing on how teacher education shapes the process of teacher identity formation, Danielewicz (English, U. of North Carolina-Chapel Hill) followed six undergraduate students of diverse backgrounds and motivations to teach over a three- year period in her secondary teacher education program. This teacher of teacher's qualitative study blends observations, interviews, their "teaching stories," and her reflections on "teaching selves." The author concludes that, even if students do no tend up in front of the classroom, field-based programs help them to "actively image themselves as teachers." Annotation c.
