1. Ward, Randall A. THE BRAID OF TEACHING: Exploring the weave of elementary school contexts in an Appalachian school district.

Degree: PhD, Teaching and Learning, 1999, Virginia Tech

<HTML> <HEAD> <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=windows-1252"> <META NAME="Generator" CONTENT="Microsoft Word 97/98"> <TITLE>ABSTRACT</TITLE> <META NAME="Template" CONTENT="TJ:Microsoft Office 98:Templates:Web Pages:Blank Web Page"> </HEAD> <BODY LINK="#0000ff" VLINK="#800080"> <B><P ALIGN="CENTER">ABSTRACT <P ALIGN="CENTER">  </B> This dissertation examines how elementary school teachers in a small rural district set between two state universities talked about the contextual elements that interacted with their teaching roles. The school district served a predominantly European American population, socio-economic ranging from middle-class to working class and some families living in poverty. Fieldnotes collected during a year of teaching third grade in a small rural school, artifacts in the form of paper material collected in schools (e.g. memos, newsletters, handouts, etc.) as well as news articles, and interviews with twenty six participants, provided the data for this study. The interviews, mostly with elementary school teachers, were the focus of the research. Findings make problematic the way most research conducted on elementary schools makes sense of school environments. Teachers described how processes within and external to their school environments entwined in a constantly changing manner. This inquiry raises questions about the impact of innovative programs, technology, the commodification of teachers’ time and space and the hierarchical distribution of power in schools on teachers’ work. It also reveals a lack of fit between the organization of schools and how they function. Finally, it shows problems with inquiry done by researchers positioned between public schools and research settings. </BODY> </HTML> Advisors/Committee Members: Nespor, Jan K.

2. Rose, Dana Gregory. A Study of Student Teacher Experiences in a Multicultural School or Learning to Teach Teachers Who Will Teach 'Other People's Children'.

Degree: PhD, Teaching and Learning, 2005, Virginia Tech

Multicultural teacher education promotes "culturally responsive practice" as a means of meeting the needs of diverse children. This qualitative study investigates four student teachers' field experiences so as to better understand future teachers' translation of "culturally responsive practice" during field work. Data sources include individual and group interview-conversations across a semester and the researcher's own stories from her experiences as a participant-observer in the school. Results are reported as four case studies with cross-case analysis. The researcher makes recommendations for teacher education based on findings from the four cases and group similarities. Results suggest that teacher education should place an emphasis on the complexity of culture, gaining knowledge about specific cultural factors, knowledge of history and present-day conditions, individual talk, and "culturally responsive relationships."
