Here is a book with numerous applications. It is intended to situate self-examination and issues-based learning in reality in a professional context in which teachers and students work to shape practices and identities. In this way, teachers can explore who they are as individuals, their understandings of themselves and their experiences, as well as the impact of these experiences in the classroom, the school, and the community. As a course book on teacher development, both for undergraduates and for teachers embarking on post-graduate work, the focus on real-life experience forges powerful links between the theoretical underpinnings of teaching and classroom practices. Burning Issues may also serve as a foundation book for coursework and workshops exploring research on teachers and teacher development. As a sourcebook for in-service teachers, the authors focus attention on real life experiences, theory, and practices associated with reflection and emancipation. The authors offer a vision for crafting a career-long tradition in critical inquiry. Educators of any stripe will find this text useful and informative.
