    Abstract

    Few studies in the area of instructor training have actually examined the experiences of homosexual and lesbian preservice teachers. Donahue (2007) implies that homosexual and lesbian preservice teachers struggle with just how to negotiate their intimate identification as developing instructors. This case that is intrinsic explored exactly just how two preservice music teachers hid or disclosed their homosexual or lesbian identification throughout their studentteaching placements. The individuals had been signed up for two various universities in midwestern states. Brett, whom recognized as homosexual, taught with a right feminine cooperating instructor in a little, rural community; Nicole, whom defined as lesbian, taught with two lesbian cooperating instructors in a setting that is suburban. Each pupil instructor took part in three interviews and supplied weekly log entries via e-mail throughout the 16-week semester. Brett’s within-case analysis revealed the following themes: Selectively sharing information that is personal and handling the cooperating instructor. Nicole’s within-case analysis yielded the following themes: Cooperating instructors as part models and developing to a pupil who she knew to be always a lesbian. Cross-case analysis illuminated the difficulties why these student instructors faced, such as the problem of being down, addressing being explicitly away, the impact for the cooperating instructor in their student-teaching experience, plus the college environment. Discussion includes implications for music instructor education and future research.

    AB – Few studies in the area of instructor training have actually analyzed the experiences of homosexual and lesbian preservice instructors. Donahue (2007) implies that homosexual and lesbian preservice teachers struggle with how exactly to negotiate their intimate identification as developing instructors. This intrinsic research study explored exactly exactly exactly how two preservice music instructors hid or disclosed their homosexual or lesbian identification in their studentteaching placements. The individuals had been signed up for two various universities in midwestern states. Brett, who recognized as homosexual, taught with a right feminine cooperating instructor in a tiny, rural community; Nicole, whom identified as lesbian, taught with two lesbian cooperating instructors in a residential district setting. Each pupil instructor took part in three interviews and supplied weekly log entries via e-mail through the semester that is 16-week. Brett’s within-case analysis revealed the following themes: Selectively sharing information that is personal and dealing with the teacher that is cooperating. Nicole’s within-case analysis yielded the themes that are following Cooperating instructors as part models and being released up to a pupil who she knew to be always a lesbian. Cross-case analysis illuminated the difficulties why these student instructors faced, like the problem of being down, addressing being explicitly away, the impact regarding the cooperating instructor in their student-teaching experience, and also the college environment. Discussion includes implications for music instructor education and research that is future.
