Teachers and Teacher World-Views
Walker, Karen
International Education Journal, v5 n3 p433-438 2004
This paper discusses the increasing imperative for teachers who work in cultural settings other than their own to develop an understanding of their own world-view and the impact their assumptions about teachers, school, students, family and so on have on their teaching practice. The brief narrative of one cultural world-view provides an example of the areas where tensions may arise for teaching practice for the unprepared teacher working in a setting outside their own cultural experience.
