Intrapsychic conflict experienced by a preservice teacher during classroom interactions: a case study in physical education
TATE Volume 19, Number 1, ISSN 0742-051X Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
The purpose of this case study was to characterize the intrapsychic conflicts experienced by a pre-service teacher (Karin) during interactions with secondary school students in a physical education class. These intrapsychic conflicts were studied from a hermeneutic and inductive perspective based on analysis of observational data and self-confrontation interviews. The results showed that Karin experienced intrapsychic conflict characterized by the competition of possible actions: (a) to present a problem to the students and let them find their own solutions, (b) to transmit a preconceived solution to the students, and (c) to maintain order in the class.
