About the Book

Drawing on narratives of five beginning teachers, Millennial Teachers explores the tensions in teachers’ young careers and how changing social, economic, and technological conditions of our current era both afford and constrain teachers’ identities and in contexts in which they work. Examining case studies of beginning teachers, Hallman draws a generational portraits of novice teachers and identifies the challenges inherent in transitioning from pre-service teacher to in-service teacher. This book synthesizes these teachers’ views on a range of topics and provides an understanding of the evolving pressures and possibilities of future teachers of the "millennial" generation.

Reviews

"In this book, the author offers compelling research that explores tensions that beginning teachers experience as they find their place teaching in uncertain times. Through portraits of teachers, this book provides insight into such tensions, including issues of standardization, diversity, and technology. This book examines how teacher educators might better reach teachers during uncertain times." -- Amy Vetter, Associate Professor of English Education, University of North Carolina Greensboro
