Title: Heavy work : living with children in schools
Author: Seidel, Jackie
Degree Master of Arts - MA

Copyright Date: 1999
Subject Keywords Education -- Social aspects; Classroom environment; School environment; Teachers -- Psychology
Abstract: This thesis is a series of meditations, stories and poetry focusing on living in classrooms with children, and on the meaning and place of education and schools in our lives. This writing is the emergent result of a commitment to the seeking of a generous language to understand and describe the work of teachers in schools, to the hope for human(e) and compassionate spaces for children to spend their days, to living with openness and creativity, to the having of challenging and wonderful conversations about life with children, and to the freedom to raise questions about the ways children and teachers (might) live together in schools. This writing is a story emerging at the point of intersection between what we might learn from children if we listen to them and remember them, and reflections on readings in ethics, education and literature.
