The Influence of Immigration on the Professional Practice and Personal Practical Knowledge of Immigrant Teachers: Three Case Studies
In-depth interviews were conducted with three teachers who had emigrated from the former Soviet Union to Israel. The intention was to learn how cultural change had influenced the professional practice of each teacher, and to describe the process of change in terms of the teachers’ personal practical knowledge and values. Reflection was found to be an aid to “deep” change, that is, change that involved a realignment of personal and professional values with the values of the new setting.
