A Science Education Learning Community Story.
This paper examines the establishment of a collaborative science education learning community over a five-year period. By assuming a pluralistic theoretical perspective which has been influenced by post-critical theory, postmodernism/poststructuralism, and feminism, focus is placed on the challenges experienced in developing a learning community among student teachers, classroom teachers, and university faculty. A consideration of the role that "scared stories" have in maintaining the established power and knowledge relationships and in maintaining the master narratives in higher education is included.
