Cultivating teacher candidates who support student agency: Four promising practices
Theory into Practice
In this article, we consider how teacher educators can support the development of agency in teacher candidates. Using a sociocultural understanding of agency, we describe four promising practices for helping teacher candidates develop agency as individuals and as a collective. We consider helping teacher candidates develop their own professional identities, their long-term goals and visions for teaching, their focus on students, and their ability to conduct systematic examinations of their own practices through teacher research.
