Narrative Study of a High School English Teacher's Beliefs about Teaching Students Identified as Having a Disability
Del Rosario, B.
International Journal of Inclusive Education, v10 n6 p645-655 2006
A qualitative study probing the connection between a high school English teacher's lived experience and beliefs about teaching students identified as having a disability using interview story method was undertaken. Struggles with family quickly emerged as a dominant storyline in the participant's discussion of her beliefs about teaching such students. The teacher's value of diversity in students, regardless of disability/ability status, evolved from family relations. The narrative also illuminates the importance of persistence and compromise in preserving and developing relationships that extend to colleagues and students. Lessons learned from gathering the narrative are also discussed. (Contains 3 notes.)
