Editorial Reviews

"Readers will be interested in how people from different geographical locations and cultures embrace narrative as a way of knowing teaching and teacher education . . .This book is a timely addition to academia, and it is especially pertinent because it addresses both education and psychology audiences. To my knowledge, a volume on this important theme does not currently exist. Therefore, the appeal of this book will be very high. It is a fine exemplar of how narrative can be used in a variety of ways to unpack human experience." - Cheryl Craig, Director of Elementary Education and Coordinator of Teaching and Teacher Education, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, University of Houston"The heart and hope in this book is expressed in the simple opening line of the Introduction: Every culture has its main stories. In this modern world of travelers and traveling stories we need books like this to help us build a more understanding and compassionate world." - F. Michael Connelly, Professor Emeritus, Department of Curriculum, Teaching and Learning, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto
