Stories from the Heart is for, by, and about prospective and practicing teachers understanding themselves as curious and literate beings, making connections with colleagues, and researching their own literacy and the literacy lives of their students. Stories from the Heart demonstrates the power and importance of story in our own lives as literate individuals. Readers are encouraged to tell or write or re-create in some way the stories of their literacy lives in order to understand how they learn and teach; they begin the journey into writing the stories of others' literacy lives, get suggestions for finding support in their researching endeavors, and examine the idea of framing stories by using the work of other teachers and researchers.
