Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"The effect of this book is to communicate extremely well what it was like for each writer to move through the experience of understanding their own professional insights -- their curriculum for being. This has never been done before (to my knowledge) in a group context and with the intent of exhibiting the formal method of research by which this was done. It is at once personal, fascinating, profound, dramatic, and instructive." -- Edmund C. Short, The Pennsylvania State University

"The book fascinates in that it really does invite the reader to extend the metaphors and to elaborate her own associations on 'turnings' and 'makings.' We really see reflective teaching and scholarship at work here." -- Jo Anne Pagano, Colgate University

Five teacher-scholars examine in a series of papers written over several years what it means to teach, to work together, to seek new forms of curriculum, and to engage in interpretive inquiry. Some of the metaphors that surfaced in their conversations and writing are Education as Journey, Language as Meaning, and Teacher as Pilgrim. Themes that grew out of their dialogue about these metaphors and their implications for curriculum and teaching include The Meaning of Questioning, Alienation, Detour, Caring, and Dwelling.

At the University of Maryland at College Park, Louise M. Berman is Professor in the Department of Education Policy, Planning, and Administration, Francine H. Hultgren is Associate Professor of Home Economics Education, and Jessie A. Roderick is Professor in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction. At the University of Maryland Baltimore County's Department of Education, Diane Lee and Mary S. Rivkin are Assistant Professors.
