Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Britzman offers a powerful view into teacher education, particularly from the point of view of student teachers. She situates the student teachers’ voices within a critical examination of the social, historical, and cultural milieux of teacher education. Her work on cultural myths as they shape student teachers' knowledge of teaching practice and the situations in which they learn to practice is an exciting contribution, and her work on voice as it emerges from the feminist literature is powerfully done.”— D. Jean Clandinin, University of Calgary
