Образ молодого учителя в современных российских и зарубежных исследованиях
Young teachers is a special group, which requires special attention. The young teachers are those who will become the nucleus of the teachers' corps within the next few years and will implement the ongoing educational reforms. This paper is a review aimed to explore areas of young teachers researches in Russia and other countries.
Based on the review, several areas for the study of young teachers can be identified: the adaptation studies, studies of professional competence of new teachers, professional development and personal characteristics of teachers.
Therefore, based on the data of existing studies, it is possible to identify the main characteristics that describe a cohort of young teachers. However, not only descriptive but also comparative analysis might be interesting and informative. What happens to the young teachers in a few years? How do they differ from the older age groups of teachers? The comparative analysis also can expand the context and provides useful results.
