Our initial purpose of writing this chapter was to review the research on preservice and practicing teachers’ general beliefs about teaching and learning. The number and kinds of beliefs that teachers hold and researchers examine are evidenced in the 27 chapters of this volume. We sought to examine those studies that looked across subject/content area specialization at teachers’ beliefs about teaching and learning. We argue that beliefs about teaching and learning may be at the forefront of teachers’ work and as such serve as filters, frames, and guides for teacher practice including: Engagement in professional learning experiences, instructional planning, and classroom interactions (Fives & Buehl, 2012).
