Communities and Consequences: An Inquiry into Ideology and Practice in Teachers' Professional Work.
Westheimer, Joel
Educational Administration Quarterly, v35 n1 p71-105 Feb 1999
Challenges vague, underconceptualized notions of teacher professional community. Findings from an exploration of two California middle-school teacher communities suggest that current models obscure significant differences in beliefs and practices. One community stresses teachers' individual rights and responsibilities; the other is driven by a strong collective mission. (70 references) (MLH)
