Developing Pre-service Primary Teachers’ Perceptions of Cross-Curricular Teaching through Reflection on Learning
This study is focused on post graduate student teachers’ perceptions of cross-curricular approaches to the planning, organisation and representation of the primary curriculum. It tracks their emerging understanding of the nature of cross-curricular education prior to and following their own cross-curricular learning experience in art and science. The findings reveal a paradox between their initial positive perceptions and their direct experiences of such practice. The conclusions identify some implications for enhancing critical engagement and the development of teacher subject and pedagogic knowledge in initial teacher education.

Diverse Student Teachers Making Sense of Difference through Engaging in Boalian Theater Approaches
A diverse group of student teachers in an alternative certification program participated in seminars integrating Boal’s Theater of the Oppressed (TO) activities. Participants created images and enacted scenes that recreated interactions with their students and also rehearsed ideas for taking action in the classroom. The findings showed student teachers engaging in empathic reflection and perspective-taking as they engaged in the theatrical activities.

Inconvenient Truths about Teacher Learning: Towards Professional Development 3.0
The purpose of this article was to present important findings about teacher learning as a fundament for thinking about professional development of preservice and inservice teachers. The author argues that much of a teacher’s behaviour is unconsciously guided by three dimensions (the cognitive, affective and motivational dimensions), and that teacher learning takes place at various levels.

How Field Experiences Influence Perceptions of Learning to Teach in a Precollegiate Urban
This study examined the support, instruction, coursework, discussions, field and clinical experiences, and critical reflection that took place within a precollegiate Urban Teaching Academy (UTA) magnet program located in a southeastern school district. Two major themes emerged with sub-themes undergirding each. The first theme of disparate program-based experiences highlighted the three unique structures each teacher implemented to expose their students to the realities of teaching, which included their emphasis—or lack thereof—on coursework and field and clinical experiences. The second theme of student reactions to their learning experiences expressed the three differentiated curricular experiences students encountered.

The Use of Questions within In-The-Moment Coaching in Initial Mathematics Teacher Education: Enhancing Participation, Reflection, and Co-Construction in Rehearsals of Practice
This article examines how coaching using questions could assist novice teachers to promote mathematical thinking and discussions within time-constrained programmes. Findings included that student teacher roles in rehearsals were enhanced through coaching with questions and co-construction was enabled. Findings indicate that questions used in coaching of rehearsals inform and empower novice teachers, essential factors within initial teacher education for equitable and ambitious mathematics teaching.

Fostering Theory–Practice Reflection in Teaching Practicums
This paper presents a design for supporting theory–practice reflection in teacher practicums. This design is based on three design principles that promote a transformative stance towards the creation of novel pedagogical approaches: mutual transformation of theory and practice, co-design among supervising teachers, university lecturers and student teachers, and participating in the long-term development of pedagogical practices. The results show that the student teachers who participated in the thematic practicum used theory more frequently in their reflections. Moreover, their theory–practice connections were more robust than those made by student teachers who participated in the conventional practicum.

The Effects of Guided Video Analysis on Teacher Candidates’ Reflective Ability and Instructional Skills
The goal of this study was to understand the effects of guiding teacher candidates through common video-recording and self-reflection activities during student teaching internships to determine whether such activities improve teacher candidates’ reflective abilities and instructional skills. Thirty-six teacher candidates with similar prior experience were divided into two groups. Both groups self-reported significant improvements in their teaching ability, but only the treatment group demonstrated significant growth in reflective ability and instructional skills over time.

A Discursive Psychology Approach to the Study of Pre-service Teachers’ Written Reflections about Teacher Effectiveness
This paper reports findings from a discourse analysis, informed by a discursive psychology (DP) perspective, of pre-service teachers’ beliefs about teacher effectiveness as constructed in reflective papers. DP treats beliefs as discursive productions that are occasioned by an interactional task and are made visible through discursive features. The analysis highlights the discursive features employed by pre-service teachers as they wrote about teacher effectiveness in relation to their field observations.
