Overview

Looking for Home: A Phenomenological Study of Home in the Classroom contains stories of children who seek "a home" in the classroom. The book focuses on the extraordinary, in the ordinary moments with children in the day-to-day life in the classroom. Sinclaire blends stories of her classroom with remembrances of children to describe vividly the range of learning possible for children, teachers, and parents when the classroom is viewed is a place for becoming at home in the world, not solely as a place of instruction. She supplements these real-life vignettes with insights into teaching, learning, and caring for children so that they become reflections on teaching sufficiently significant to support other teachers in the narratives of their teaching.
