Narrating Professional Development: Teachers' Stories as Texts for Improving Practice.
Wood, Diane R.
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v31 n4 p426-48 Dec 2000
Traces a systematic, respectful process for using narrative materials in teachers' professional development. One high school teacher wrote a series of stories about school experiences, using them to facilitate discussion, thinking, and writing about her ongoing practice. Outlines the methods of narrative inquiry used to safeguard the teachers' voice and perspective while supporting her in critical reflection and changed practice. (SM)
