Learning Stories in Practice

  • Margaret Carr - Waikato University, New Zealand
  • Wendy Lee - Director of the Educational Leadership Project, New Zealand


May 2019 | 192 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Margaret Carr and Wendy Lee have often been asked for a follow-on practical companion to their seminal  2012 book Learning Stories; a complimentary book that provides practical advice for teachers who are embarking on a ‘narrative assessments-for-learning’ journey. After much anticipation that book is here at last!

Packed with a wide range of full-colour examples of real life learning stories from all over the world this practical guide is influenced by their ongoing work with teachers across many countries and the thoughtful comments and questions that teachers have asked during conversations at conferences, lectures and professional development programmes. They have turned these conversations with teachers and students into key ideas, and a practical framework on how to initiate and create good learning stories and why they are valuable.

They show you how to write stories that capture the magic and excitement of each young child's journey through the early years and how to develop a deep professional understanding of the learning that takes place during this special and influential time in their lives.
