Summary Drawing upon critical ethnography this book asks the question, what does learning to teach do and mean to newcomers and to those who surround them? The revised introduction presents a refined and further developed theoretical framework and analysis, discussing why we might return to a study of teaching and learning. Also included is a "hidden chapter" that comments on the methodology of the study and some of the dilemmas the author continues face as her own thinking develops around the issues of representing teaching and learning for those entering the profession. --book cover
