How do preservice teachers with low and high teacher self-efficacy respond when instructing a simulated classroom with challenging behaviors? This research study will identify the responses of these preservice teachers as well as examine their teacher self-efficacy and teacher anxiety measures following their participation using TeachLive™, an augmented reality teacher preparation tool. Researchers will gain insight into preservice teachers' self-efficacy and their response to simulated challenging classroom behaviors.
