An Examination of Two African American Males' Decisions to Become Secondary Science Teachers <p>Abstract:</p><p>Despite calls for an increase in the number of African American male teachers, very few research studies have closely examined how African American men arrive at their decisions to become educators. This study examines why two African American male pre-service teacher candidates chose secondary science teaching as a career. This study also examines how the men discussed their experiences as educators in training. Findings from the study revealed that the African American male pre-service candidates pursued teaching for altruistic and intrinsic reasons. The men also primarily discussed their experiences in light of the challenges and obstacles they faced on the teaching pathway.</p> http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The High School Journal University of North Carolina Press
