The Invisible World of Professional Practical Knowledge of a Teacher of the Gifted.
Coleman, Laurence J.
Journal for the Education of the Gifted, v14 n2 p151-65 Win 1991
An expert teacher was studied, using ethnographic and phenomenological techniques, as he planned and taught 2 philosophy courses to gifted students, ages 12-18. The paper provides an overview of the teacher's thoughts and an explanation of the impact of an unwritten and unobservable collection of knowledge on the teacher's observable planning and action.
