Access from EThOS:
In chapter one I present a history and critique of the articles which comprise my PhD looking at each article in turn. There are two main sets of articles included and I set out how one area of interest developed into the next. The work focuses on the theme of mentoring and then history education. Together they represent my concern with a community of.practice within the history teaching profession. In chapter one I explain the contextual history in the development of my ideas and thinking between the articles and demonstrate how together they form a coherent whole. The chapter is presented as a story, something of a personal narrative, placing my own development over the years of my PhD at the centre. The chapter also includes a critical update on the themes raised in the articles along with my ongoing critical reflections. In chapter two I examine the ontology, epistemology and methodology which underpin my PhD articles. Again I present the story of my own introduction to educational research to assist in explaining the approaches adopted. The shift from history graduate and history teacher to researcher in education is examined and the place of story and narrative in educational research is also examined.
