Do Alternative Teacher Education Programs Manage to Attract Different Candidates and Students?
This research aimed to examine the profiles of the candidates who had applied to the alternative retraining programs at the selected college. The study then would compare them with those candidates who had been accepted onto the traditional programs. The authors found that the alternative programs attracted students with an academic and personal profile different from the one that characterizes students in the traditional teacher retraining programs. In all three alternative programs, the number of students with advanced postgraduate degrees was significantly higher than the number of students with advanced degrees in the traditional programs.

Knowing and Understanding More About Teaching and Learning as an Activity
In this article, the author is talking about non-formal education. The goals, content, methods of teaching, ways of achievement measuring, and all the other aspects of non-formal education can differ widely. Also, teachers working in non-formal education can be very different from each other from many aspects, e.g., the training they got before starting any type of non-formal teaching. They can also be different if they had or still have any experience in mainstream education ("schooling"). We should pay much more attention to non-formal education than we did typically, i.e., without thinking that non-formal education would be better than formal education or the opposite. They are different, but based on the same roots. There are dozens of crucial issues such as What kinds of knowledge can be constructed in non-formal education?

Narratives of Learning to Teach: Taking on Professional Identities
This article examines the written narratives and poetry of new teachers in two different pathways into teaching to deepen our knowledge about how teachers construct a professional identity, to further understand the role of narrative and inquiry in teacher learning, and to add to conversations about the design of teacher preparation programs. An analysis of the teachers’ narratives reveals that their professional identities were shaped by their membership in a range of knowledge communities, including the Narrative Writing Group and also their schools, network of friends, and the preparation programs. The narratives of professional identity development were shaped in relationship to other people, including mentor teachers and students.

Feelings of Preparedness Among Alternatively Certified Teachers: What is the Role of Program Features?
This study examines the extent to which program features relate to new teacher feelings of preparedness. The final sample of approximately 1,690 1st-year teachers included the teachers who had pursued either the traditional route or the alternative route. The findings reveal that alternatively certified teachers are found to feel somewhat less well prepared than traditionally certified teachers. The results also show that 1st-year teachers who have fewer types of education coursework and shorter field experiences feel less well prepared than teachers whose pedagogical preparation is more complete.
