Communities of Practice and Discourse Communities: Negotiating Boundaries in NBPTS Certification.
Burroughs, Robert; Schwartz, Tammy A.; Hendricks-Lee, Martha
Teachers College Record, v102 n2 p344-74 Apr 2000
Used interviews and qualitative methods to examine the rhetorical difficulties that four teachers experienced in applying for National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) certification. Results found that the teachers had difficulty representing their knowledge about practice in writing. The most successful candidates were able to assume the NBPTS discourse values, which may be at odds with teachers' working knowledge. (SM)
