Teachers' Voices: Storytelling and Possibility

Drawing on the methods of narrative inquiry, this book brings together the voices of teachers as they try to puzzle things out and identify the complex patterns of lives in education. The book focuses on the stories of teachers from the diverse, multicultural setting of Israel. The chapters examine the shaping of teacher identity, teacher development through autobiographic writing and storytelling, ways of ‘making place’ elaborated by Jewish immigrant teachers and by Palestinian teachers in the Israeli school system, processes of innovation and change, and the efforts of teachers from different communities to engage in dialogue.
