Unpacking the Loaded Teacher Matrix

Negotiating Space and Time Between University and Secondary English Classrooms

Series:

sj Miller and Linda Norris

What issues in English teacher education are sidestepped because they are too loaded to address? What aren’t we talking about when we discuss classroom management, censorship, standardized tests, media literacy, social justice issues, the standards, and technology? What really matters to novices entering the profession? The authors in this book wrestle with the disparities between preservice English teacher instruction and secondary school space as the two collide, and describe the tools that preservice English teachers need to negotiate and navigate between theory and practice. This book answers these questions and offers groundbreaking insights about liberatory pedagogy for how teacher educators can mentor preservice teachers on touchy issues, providing them with tools to reach today’s students.
