Points of Light, Bridges to the Future, Flower Gardens, and the Alamo: Rural Teachers' Metaphors of Schooling.
Porter, Maureen
Teacher Educator, v33 n3 p185-208 Win 1998
Using data from an ethnographic study of the use of metaphors by rural teachers, this paper explores how rural teachers experience a sense of place, asking if they actively craft their own metaphors of schooling and examining the potential of metaphors of place to contribute to more substantive and reflective policy making for rural schools.
