Summary
  • Growing out of a 1992 conference that attracted teachers and educators from around the world, this book presents 13 essays which share the insights of 16 leading university scholars and teacher-researchers regarding the re-emergence of teacher education as a central focus in the field of English education. The book explores what teachers of the English language arts must know to be effective, how such knowledge can best be assessed, and the impact of cultural differences in the classroom, as well as preservice and inservice training and the roles of the university and the teacher-researcher. The book discusses methods of supporting teacher development such as the study of cases, teacher groups, ethnographic research in the classroom and community, and teacher lore. After some preliminaries concerning teacher thinking, essays in the book are: (1) "Knowing, Believing, and the Teaching of English" (Pamela L. Grossman and Lee S.^
  • Shulman); (2) "Producing and Assessing Knowledge: Beginning to Understand Teachers' Knowledge through the Work of Four Theorists" (Anthony Petrosky); (3) "Teacher as Learner: Working in a Community of Teachers" (Judy Buchanan); (4) "Is There a Problem with Knowing Thyself? Toward a Poststructuralist View of Teacher Identity" (Deborah P. Britzman); (5) "Cultural Differences as Resources: Ways of Understanding in the Classroom" (Beverly J. Moss); (6) "Teacher Research: Seeing What We Are Doing" (Glenda L. Bissex); (7) "Teacher Lore: Learning about Teaching from Teachers" (William Ayers and William H. Schubert); (8) "Teacher Change: Overthrowing the Myth of One Teacher, One Classroom" (Sally Hampton); (9) "What's Effective Inservice?" (Richard Beach); (10) "Issues Emerging from the Teacher-Researcher Discussion Group" (Christine C. Pappas); (11) "The Role of Universities in the Professional Development of Practicing Teachers" (James Marshall); (12) "What Followed for Me" (Michael W.^
  • Smith); and (13) "In Search of Community within English Education" (Renee T. Clift). (RS)
