"Reel" Metaphors for Teaching

by Sarah Markgraf, Lisa Pavlik
Metaphor and Symbol ()


Metaphoric representations of the teaching-learning process in popular film images seem to fall within three categories: "TEACHING AS DOGMATIC TASKMASTERING," "TEACHING AS HEROISM," and "TEACHING AS INTIMACY." Sometimes, however, film images are destabilized through irony and nuance, which can upset stereotypes of the teacher-learner relationship. (Sarah Markgraf and Lisa Pavlik)
