Shut up and listen! how experiences as a learner and a culture shock shifted my focus of teacher knowledge in a science classroom
Behaviorism, Cognitive Dissonance, Conceptual Change, Constructivism, Hegemonic Masculinity
When pre-service teachers transition into service many revert back to the experiences they had as a learner. This can be an issue if the teacher did not receive "best practice" when they were engaged in the K-12 experience. This autoethnography will take the reader through the experiences of a teacher who did not receive an education where his teachers utilized a pedagogy promoted in Tertiary schooling. He will describe an experience with his poverty-stricken students that made him realize that his didactic style of teaching was not effective.
