Teachers Speak about Their Learning: Personal Experience Research through Non-Fictional Narrative Story
Linn, Genie Bingham
Teacher Education and Practice, v20 n2 p183-190 Spr 2007
Based on the theoretical framework of reflective practice and teacher education, this article shares portions of a personal experience research project designed to gain understanding of teacher learning through nonfictional narrative story. Excerpts comprise the stories of learning-based journeys shared by five East Texas teachers that focus on a strong ethic of caring for students that motivate teacher learning. Excerpts introduce the self who teaches, and they give voice to teachers' personal experiences while illustrating the compelling nature of narrative story.
