Teaching as a Collective Work: Analysis, Current Research and Implications for Teacher Education
Grangeat, Michel; Gray, Peter
Journal of Education for Teaching: International Research and Pedagogy, v34 n3 p177-189 Aug 2008
This article investigates teaching as collective work. The goals, functions and forms of teachers' collective work and changes in the professional representations or repertoire of actions through collective activity are identified. A synthetic framework is outlined and shown to be useful in addressing the data, by revealing the importance of interactions in professional competence acquisition. The article relates this framework to data collected from new teachers in the induction year in Scottish secondary schools (age range of pupils 11-18 years) and discusses the relationship of collective work to competence standards. Some issues for teacher educators and further research questions are identified. (Contains 2 endnotes and 1 figure.)
