Thomas Hatch
Main Collection LB1027. H348 2006
Based on the development of the Carnegie Academy for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, Into the Classroom clearly shows the advantages of bringing teaching into the public arena and making it possible for many people to see the nature and quality of the teaching that goes on inside schools. Once teaching is more public we can create unprecedented opportunities for teachers to learn from one another and for others to participate constructively in supporting and improving schools. Into the Classroom outlines the myriad issues that must be addressed in order for the teaching profession to become a true learning profession."-Jacket.

Main Collection PN212. U68 2003
"Up Close and Personal: The Teaching and Learning of Narrative Research, the second volume in the series The Narrative Study of Lives, brings together a diverse group of narrative research scholars who share their actual experiences of learning, teaching, working, and growing in this exciting field. The wide variety of innovative approaches and expansive theoretical perspectives they offer will be immensely helpful to those who are learning or teaching qualitative methods." "In this volume, chapter authors successfully challenge readers to think about narrative research in its own context while also maintaining original, personal voices that underscore the value this field places on an individual's communication of his or her experience. By revealing their struggles with qualitative research's emerging and evolving processes and their experiences working with students at various educational levels, these authors subtly, but effectively, arm teachers with tools that anticipate common pitfalls and frustrations. At the same time, the authors relate professional triumphs that illustrate effective teaching - and doing - of narrative research."-Jacket.
