    E-mail Author
    GLENDA MOSS, an Assistant Professor of Teacher Education at Indiana University—Purdue University Fort Wayne, is Co-Site Director for the Appleseed Writing Project—Indiana and co-editor of Scholarly Partnerships Edu. Following 13 years as a full-time middle school teacher, she now prepares secondary teachers. Moss views her teaching and researcher as inseparable, using critical narrative inquiry methods in her teaching and research of her teaching. She believes in the potential of critical narrative inquiry as a path to developing critical pedagogy among teachers and is working with Hampton Press on a book publication, Crossing Boundaries and Building Learning Communities: Critical Education and Narrative Research as Praxis, to present narrative inquiry as a tool for revitalizing teacher education. Moss researches critical narrative inquiry and uses the same inquiry methods to research and develop teacher education, critical pedagogy, multicultural education, portfolio assessment, and educational leadership.
