Teachers as Curriculum Planners. Narratives of Experience.
Connelly, F. Michael; Clandinin, D. Jean
The intent of this book is to strengthen the professional role teachers play in curriculum planning and development, a process central to teacher activity and responsibility. Contextual narratives, document analysis, the use of metaphor, personal rules, principles, beliefs, images, and philosophy are all described for use in hands-on exercises. The book contains case studies and useful school-based examples of how individual teachers at all levels of the curriculum draw on their own experience for planning curriculum and instruction. The concept of narrative is underlined throughout as a key to discovering how teachers and students make meaning in their lives. (JD)
