This mixed methods study was designed to explore the extent to which student teachers’ perspectives on teaching changed as a result of the student teaching experience, and whether or not their perspectives more closely resembled the perspectives of their cooperating teachers following the student teaching practicum. The data revealed that approximately half of the student teachers changed their dominant perspectives, though nearly all student teachers and cooperating teachers reported ways in which the student teachers changed; and, student teachers most commonly cited their cooperating teachers as having had an impact on their changes.
