The Search for Routes to a Common Ground for the Building of a Community of Co-Learners.
This paper reports on an on-going action research project that attempts to establish a science education learning community. A pluralistic theoretical perspective influenced by post-critical theory, postmodernism/poststructuralism, and feminism is used in the examination of the challenges in developing a learning community among student teachers, classroom teachers, and university faculty. One prominent research outcome in the findings is the recognition of the need to address the "sacred stories" of university practice which contributes to maintaining the established power/knowledge relationships and maintaining the master narratives in teacher education. Contains 33 references. (Author/JRH)
