Exploring Teachers in Fiction and Film: Saviors, Scapegoats and Schoolmarms by Melanie Shoffner

This book about teachers as characters in popular media examines what can be learned from fictional teachers for the purposes of educating real teachers. Its aim is twofold: to examine the constructed figure of the teacher in film, television and text and to apply that examination in the context of teacher education. By exploring the teacher construct, readers are able to consider how popular fiction and film have influenced society's understandings and views of classroom teachers.

Organized around four main themes-Identifying with the Teacher Image; Constructing the Teacher with Content; Imaging the Teacher as Savior; The Teacher Construct as Commentary-the chapters examine the complicated mixture of fact, stereotype and misrepresentation that create the image of the teacher in the public eye today. This examination, in turn, allows teacher educators to use popular culture as curriculum. Using the fictional teacher as a text, preservice-and practicing-teachers can examine positive and negative (and often misleading) representations of teachers in order to develop as teachers themselves.
