Ways of Being in Teaching: Conversing Paths to Meaning
Wiebe, Sean; Guiney Yallop, John J.
Canadian Journal of Education, v33 n1 p177-198 2010
In this article, we invite readers into a conversation about ways of being in teaching. Through e-mails, telephone calls, and face-to-face meetings, we use our first conversations with each other as shared moments that we returned to, seeking to better understand how we made meaning in our individual school teaching careers, and how we continue to make meaning as teacher educators. Exploring together our memories, we use poetry and narrative to collaboratively interpret what those memories might mean for us and for educational communities.
