Dialectical Practices in Education: Creating Third Spaces in the Education of Teachers
Kozleski, Elizabeth B.
Teacher Education and Special Education, v34 n3 p250-259 Aug 2011
In this commentary, the author provides a framework for examining the articles in this issue. The author does so by providing a focus for reading and linking our brief history to the present and the future. She provides a set of questions about engaging research that seeks to improve the ways in which we question, construct understanding, and interrogate one another in what counts in teacher education. For our field to mature and expand, we need spaces in which we can understand multiple perspectives, honor our differences, and find ways of improving how teachers learn and impact their students.
