Abstract

This study explored pre-service teachers' (PSTs') actions during and reflections on a clinically simulated parent-teacher interaction. We used Hargreaves's (2001a) Emotional Geographies of Teaching framework to ground and interpret the simulation data. Results indicate PSTs wrestled with the concept of professionalism, held reservations toward the actual and probable reactions of the standardized parents, and constrained both their language and actions. Our discussion centers on the presence of moral, professional, and political geographies within complex parent-teacher interactions. Implications suggest the necessity of engaging with the practice of parent/caregiver communications, as well as the emotional geographies that undergird such interactions.
