This volume aims to give teachers and scholars a greater understanding of the challenges associated with the practice of fostering transformative learning, along with providing a recognition of the complexity of practice beyond the application of strategies and techniques. Teaching for Change will encourage and motivate practitioners to take more risks in the classroom, pushing the limits of what is presently known about transformative education. Fostering transformative learning is about teaching for change. It requires intentional action, a willingness to take personal risk, a genuine concern for the learners' betterment, and the wherewithal to draw on a variety of methods and techniques that help create a classroom environment that encourages and supports personal growth. To become effective at fostering transformative learning, it is helpful to look through the lens of those who have been engaged in the practice. The contributing authors to this volume are seasoned practitioners and scholars who have introduced innovations that enhance the practice of fostering transformative learning and have asked ethical questions that need to be explored and reflected upon when practicing transformative learning in the classroom. This volume provides a tutorial and analysis of teaching for change by showing how these seasoned practitioners and scholars grapple with the fundamental issues associated with the subject. Teaching for Change is the 109th issue of the quarterly higher education report New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education, published by Jossey-Bass.

Inquiry and Reflection shows how stories of schooling can elucidate difficult, and unexamined problems facing teachers. While professional texts tend to raise issues of power and its distribution and questions of culture and ideology, often the manner of presentation is abstract, and pre-service teachers have difficulty making connections. Yet literary, film, and video materials illuminate problems and suggest ideas to which teachers can actively respond. This book offers teacher educators a variety of resources for articulating a critical pedagogy and suggests an alternative to the technical, job training approach to teacher education by providing a unique educational curricula that illuminates issues of power, ideology, and culture.

Changing the Way We Teach: Writing and Resistance in the Training of Teaching Assistants draws on eighteen case studies to illustrate the critical role writing plays in overcoming graduate student resistance to instruction, facilitating change, and developing professional identity. Sally Barr Ebest argues that teaching assistants in English must be actively engaged in the theory and practice underlying composition pedagogy in order to better understand how to alter the way they teach and why such change is necessary. In illustrating the potential for change when the paradigm shift in composition is applied to graduate education, Ebest considers recent discussions of composition pedagogy; post-secondary teaching theories; cognitive, social cognitive, and educational psychology; and issues of gender, voice, and writing. Stemming from research conducted over a five-year period, this volume explores how a cross-section of teaching assistants responded to pedagogy as students and how their acceptance of pedagogy affected their performance as instructors. Investigating reasons behind manifestations of resistance and necessary elements for overcoming it, Ebest finds that engagement in composition strategies?reflective writing, journaling, drafting, and active learning?and restoration of feelings of self-efficacy are the primary factors that facilitate change. Concerned with gender as it relates to personal construct, Changing the Way We Teach traces the influence of familial expectations and the effects of literacy experiences on students and draws correlations between feminist and composition pedagogy. Ebest asserts that the phenomena contributing to the development of a strong, unified voice in women?self-knowledge, empathy, positive role models, and mentors?should be essential elements of a constructivist graduate curriculum. To understand composition pedagogy and to convince students of its values, Ebest holds that educators must embrace it themselves and trace the effects through active research. By providing graduate students with pedagogical sites for research and reflection, faculty enable them to express their anger or fear, study its sources, and quite often write their way to a new understanding.
