Reconceptualizing Literacy Methods Instruction

To Build a House that Remembers Its Forest

Series:

Cynthia A. McCallister

Reconceptualizing Literacy Methods Instruction: To Build a House That Remembers Its Forest is a personal narrative that recounts the author's uneasy beginnings as a college teacher. It is also a research text, an interpretive study of her teaching mentor's literacy education classroom, organized around the themes of classroom structure, course content, and classroom community. Dr. McCallister frames her study within the context of her own story as an emerging teacher educator, discussing the importance of powerful role models, the need for mentorships at the college level, and the importance of observation and demonstration in the development of the craft of teaching.
