Perspectives on Urban Education, v1 n2 p1-14 Fall 2002
Discusses complexities arising when teachers and teacher educators use autobiographical texts to reflect on their personal/professional selves. Data come from an ongoing research project on teachers' autobiographies, which involves a group of educators at various stages of their career who meet regularly to write and share their autobiographies. Four perspectives on audience, self-censorship, collaborative writing, and the value of community emerged from analysis of the writings. (SM)
