Helena Amaral da Fontoura The importance of narratives in teacher education
June 25, 2018
Helena Amaral da Fontoura is a professor at the State University of Rio de Janeiro. For the last five years she has been providing a pedagogical residence to former student teachers who meet at the university out of school hours. They read, do exercises, meditate, draw, talk about their experiences, and then write about them. Helena describes how teachers who have participated in the pedagogical residence demonstrate a richer understanding of their relationships with students. She encourages other teacher educators to think get out of university classrooms, to get beginning teachers to talk about their teaching experiences, to write about them, and to share them.
