Do teacher education programs have personality?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Teacher education programs might consider the extent to which their own curriculum provides pre-service teachers with some foundational knowledge in personality psychology. It seems reasonable to consider that a course in educational psychology might be the course in which future teachers are presented an introduction to personality theory. In this study, we address this question by quantifying the overlap of terminology and concepts between top selling undergraduate personality psychology text books and top selling undergraduate educational psychology text books. Results indicate that among personality terms, 55% did not appear in the indexes of any of the educational psychology text books examined and conceptually, the average percentage of conceptual coverage in the educational psychology texts was 5.08%.
