The Teacher as Bag Lady: Images and Metaphors of Teaching.
Parks, John G.
College Teaching, v44 n4 p132-36 Fall 1996
Literature is examined for its metaphors for teaching and teachers, including the teacher as custodian and steward of knowledge, as sower of knowledge, and as "trickster," a picaresque, mythical figure who offers solutions, often inadvertently. The roles of kindness and cruelty in the learning/teaching process are also considered. (MSE)
