Navigating Role Forces and the Aesthetic[image omitted]Authentic Caring Dialectic: A Novice Urban Science Teacher's Developmental Trajectory
Maulucci, Maria S. Rivera
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v5 n3 p625-647 Sep 2010
Examining role forces and resources available to new teachers is crucial to understanding how teachers use and expand cultural, social, and symbolic resources and how they engage teaching for social justice and caring in urban science education. This critical narrative inquiry explores three levels of story. First, the narratives explore my role as a district science staff developer and my efforts to leverage district resources to improve students' opportunities to learn science. Second, the narratives explore the ways in which a novice science teacher, Tina, navigated role forces and the aesthetic[image omitted]authentic caring dialectic in a high poverty, urban school. A third level of narrative draws on sociological theories of human interaction to explore role forces and how they shaped Tina's developmental trajectory. I describe how Tina expanded cultural, social, and symbolic resources to enact her teaching role. (Contains 1 table.)
