Five Secondary Teachers: Creating and Presenting a Teaching Persona
Keywords:Persona, Preservice Teachers
AbstractThis qualitative study investigates the ways that five secondary teachers developed and presented personae. The researcher collected and analyzed data using a theoretical frame based in social psychology, including Goffmanâs Presentation of Self in Everyday Life (1959), and Miles and Hubermanâs (1994) three-step approach to qualitative data analysis. Findings indicate that teachers drew on three major realmsâthe physical, psychological, and socialâwhen constructing classroom personae. Implications include increased opportunities for teacher reflection on persona and its effects.
