Abstract

Grounded in feminist research methodology, the following readerߣs theater script seeks to representthe complex ways in which women teachers construct their lifeand work histories. The authors have chosen to “represent” their data (gathered primarily from oral history interviews and document analysis) in a way that dramatizes how women story their lives and how women teachers’ narratives disrupt the monolithic master narrative typicallytold about teaching. Although the lifehistories have been collected individually, they have been orchestrated into a chorus of voices that express multiple ways of knowing and being, the whole becoming greaterthan the sum of its parts.
