The Teacher Casebook:
Teacher Stories Matter
The Teacher Casebook project officially launched in mid-January of 2019 and seeks to celebrate, promote, and advocate for teachers sharing their experiences with instruction and relationships.
Inspired by the work Shulman and Colbert (1988) conducted in the late 80s/early 90s, the Teacher Casebook seeks to build a repository of teachers’ stories that are concise, powerful narratives that are couched in current education research. Each case is limited to approximately 1,000 words and is identified as either an Instruction-Type Case (experiences related to lesson planning, classroom instruction, pedagogical moves) or Relationship-Type Case (experiences related to interactions with students, parents, colleagues, and communities at-large). T
he hope is to grow the project and push beyond language arts teacher contributions, creating a public, digital space for educators to seek out and share experiences connected to one another as we believe this some of the most powerful professional development educators can share with one another!
