The Potential Use of Micropolitics in Examining Personal and Professional Experiences of Music Teachers
Conway, Colleen; Hibbard, Shannan; Rawlings, Jared R.
Journal of Music Teacher Education, v25 n1 p23-36 Oct 2015
This literature review defines the field of micropolitics in education, presents empirical studies of micropolitics from both general education and teacher education research, and connects micropolitics research to music teacher education research. Suggestions for music teacher education include: (a) introducing policy in preservice education; (b) future studies of the micropolitical landscape of schools; (c) future studies on the attainment of micropolitical literacy for new teachers; and (d) continued investigations of school reform, school climate, and school change as they relate to music teacher education.
