Nichols, Sharon E.; Tippins, Deborah J.
Research in Science Education, v30 n1 p141-53 2000
Explores an approach to autobiographical research based on a notion of "outlaw genre" autobiography, referred to as "biomythography". Describes the use of photo essays to learn about prospective elementary teachers' stories of science and science education. Calls for an examination of hegemonies extending from students' personal histories as science learners, and through mythologies of teacher education. (Contains 24 references.) (Author/WRM)
