Recognizing the importance of personal narratives in general and in the
field of teacher training in particular, this paper first presents a review of
research in the field, offers several definitions and theories of analysis, then it
provides readers with the personal narratives and the analyses of three fourthyear students in the department of English at a college for teacher training.
The goal is to find out, learn and make use of the voices, attitudes,
experiences, visions, successes, failures, hopes and frustrations of students
engaged in teacher education. The conclusion asserts the necessity of
adopting a model of training which is based on students' personal narratives -
one which encourages and strengthens partnership between students,
cooperating teachers and academics.
