Series: Practitioner Inquiry Series
This unique collection of exemplars explores narrative as a powerful means of inquiry, while also examining its possible limitations. Drawing on the experiences of teachers and teacher educators in a variety of settings who have been researching their own teaching, this book:
Nona Lyons is a visiting research scholar at University College Cork in Ireland, and Vicki Kubler LaBoskey is a professor of education at Mills College in Oakland, California, where she co-directs the Teachers for Tomorrow’s Schools Credential Program.
“This book demonstrates the power of narrative knowing in the continuing development of teachers. Careful narrative research, as described here, is especially important now, when governmental policies are demanding an almost exclusive emphasis on experimental designs. This collection shows what we stand to lose if narrative research is discarded.”
— Nel Noddings, Lee L. Jacks Professor of Child Education Emerita, Stanford University
