Abstract

This book shows all the various ways that teachers and the teaching profession are depicted in popular culture, literature, and throughout history. It is valuable because it shows the kinds of stereotypes that teachers have to run up against while having contact with their students. Obviously the number of cultural depictions of teachers has a much greater reach than the actual lived experiences students have with teachers themselves. The point is that these depictions create nefarious images that often impede the learning process, and create raised expectations for teachers who sometimes cannot live up to them.
