Chang, Yu-jung – Journal of Language, Identity, and Education, 2018
Research on novice ESL/EFL teachers' identity development often characterizes the teaching practicum/internship as a boundary-crossing period in which pre-service teachers move out of the sheltered environment of education to become in-service teachers in real classrooms.
