Teacher Talk

A Post-Formal Inquiry into Educational Change


Raymond A. Horn, Jr.

Teacher Talk provides insight into school change and culture through the real-life experiences of six career teachers over a span of thirty years. Through a post-formal qualitative method, Teacher Talk demonstrates the power of conversation in promoting substantial educational change. Systems thinking, school culture, school community, and spirituality are presented in accessible language as critical aspects of educational change. The frank dialogue and participant-observer role of the author addresses change in a realistic and uncommon manner. Teacher Talk is a valued resource for pre-service teachers, graduate students in curriculum and educational leadership, and for teachers and curriculum developers who are engaged in change initiatives. Teacher Talk is a must read for all who are considering careers in education or educational administration.
