Educational Voices: Life Stories and Life Histories
The article discusses a life history approach paradigm, which depicts the history and process of education. It is argued that life histories of current or former teachers are particularly suited to the needs of both researchers and the teachers themselves. The life history approach places the relationship of collaboration at the centre of our concerns. The teacher researcher can collaborate in investigating not only the stories of lives but also the contexts of lives. Such collaboration should provide new understandings for all of us concerned with the world of schooling.
