Voices from the pages: a narrative study of a woman as learner/teacher Coleman, Elizabeth May


Interpretive narrative in the tradition of hermeneutic phenomenology, this autobiographical thesis traces the development of the writer as a learner/teacher. Chapter One identifies the "voices" embedded within the writer's personal journal texts from 1962 to 1993. Chapter Two discusses the development and integration of these voices and their relationship to the writer as a learner/teacher. Seven of the writer's "Chorus" of women friends speak of some of their learning experiences through found poetry in Chapter Three, and in the closing chapter personal/political, learning, teaching and methodological implications are discussed. Such implications ponder the personal experience of a woman learning and teaching in a patriarchal education system.
