Preservice Literacy Teacher Identity Development by Mindy Legard Larson

Literacy teacher identity development: Discourses, subjectivity and agency is a response to the growing number of concerned teacher educators who seek to make sense of the complexities of identity development in elementary and middle school preservice literacy teachers.
Using a poststructural feminisms theoretical lens, Dr. Larson investigates the authoritative discourses of personal literacy biographies, literacy coursework, and student teaching impacting the identity development of seven pre­service teachers during their graduate teacher education program. The agency of the preservice teachers is demonstrated through the strategies they used to negotiate and perform their identities during student teaching--working within and outside of the literacy structures of the classrooms of their cooperating teachers. The power of time and space in relation to each other is seen as a means for continued identity transformation for preservice literacy teachers.
This book is written for literacy teacher educators, preservice literacy teachers and professional development educators.
