Synopsis
"Learning to Teach, Teaching to Learn: Stories of Collaboration in Teacher Education" centres around participants in a year-long alternative teacher-education programme who, through discussions about their professional and personal lives, found themselves questioning the larger construction of teacher pedagogy. Perceiving a disconnection between their education and personal experiences, these student teachers, co-operating teachers, and university professors collaborated to imagine and live out a new story of teacher education. Their narratives, presented here, are organised into 5 thematic areas: teacher education as part of the ongoing "storying" and "restorying" of students' lives; rejection of the theory/practice dichotomy; collaboration and how it redefines teachers' roles; the new language specific to teacher education; and improvisation and what it means to live a new story. The editors, D. Jean Clandinin, Annie Davies, Pat Hogan, and Barbara Kennard, aim not to present contributors' lives as models, but to enrich and deepen the ongoing discussion concerning teacher education. This book is a valuable supplementary text in courses on teacher education, curriculum, qualitative studies, educational reform and the sociology of education. Students, practitioners and professors should find the book engrossing and revealing.
