Narrative Inquiries of Geographically Close Schools: Stories Given, Lived, and Told Academic Article uri icon


  • Using the story constellations version of narrative inquiry, I tell of two schoolsCochrane Academy and Hardy Academythat evolved from a shared social narrative history and that were given stories of school and stories of reform that had many features in common. I detail how the founding principals narratives informed the teachers knowledge and shaped the school contexts in distinctive ways. I illuminate how different confluences of factors gave rise to different metaphorswith different interpretive twiststhat the educators subsequently came to live school reform by.
