Overview

By exploring the very human and moving autobiographies of teachers, and the promising insights of feminist and critical reading theory, Atwell-Vasey asks how we can oppose the alienation and distancing that so often characterize curriculum in schools. She links the hopes and concerns of teachers with curriculum forms that reverberate with the drive, love and conflict, characteristic of the rich experiences of life. These curriculum forms include theater work, intense negotiation and trust among readers, and projects that ask students to use texts to pursue and reconceptualize unresolved issues and social obligations in the real world.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Atwell-Vasey education, Mary Washington College offers a theory of English teaching that is based on psychoanalytic maternal theory. She then applies this theory to the narratives of three secondary English teachers concerning their reading experiences, concluding that these narratives disclose a familiar discrepancy between the ways in which teachers are moved by language and literature in their personal lives and the manner in which they teach reading in the classroom. She explores implications for curriculum choices. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
