Abstract

Within social research, moving beyond traditional methods of inquiry and away from numbers, variables, tables and questionnaires researchers can judiciously adopt the narrative inquiry approach of knowing and interpreting. Narratives are a medium for teachers to reflect on their teaching practices and explore options to develop better approaches. This research methodology, when used in the context of teaching and learning, offers a means to reconnoitre teachers‟ concerns, roles and performance. Narrative is a likely way of making sense into the experience that has a particular value in fostering teachers‟ reflective thinking
