The Power Of Stories In The Change Process

In my work in curriculum and teacher education, I have observed that the most powerful change agent for a teacher is another teacher (van der Heijden, Beijaard, Geldens, & Popeijus, 2018). Programmed professional learning, as well-intentioned as it might be, cannot match the power of story of lived experience, sometimes shared incidentally and anecdotally but received with purposeful benefit.
Case Stories (Norris, McCammon, & Miller, 2000) and Critical Incidents (Tripp, 1993/2012) provide two lenses for teacher change that carry similar power and purpose when used with intentionality.
