Review An interesting examination of gender in teacher education. Reccomended for graduate students and professionals. (Choice)

Strengths of this book include its hybrid methodology and development of the particular strategy of using imagery as data that Dr. Fischman has developed. . . . Even though this study applies to Argentina, with its unique history, the issues are pertinent to many countries' teacher education programs. . . . The book will be of particular interest to comparative educators and teacher educators, and to those interested in gender, teacher education, education in Latin America, and visual qualitative research strategies. (Educational Review)

[A] marvellous book. . . . A rich text which is a must for anyone currently working in teacher education. It provides a refreshing alternative to the numerous exhortations to 'effectiveness' and 'improvement' currently on offer. (Educational Review)

A strength of this work is Fischman's extensive literature base. A distinction of Fischman's text is the opportunity to examine data in the visual form through drawings from TEP students. The images are powerful in their revelation of the strong stereotypes in the student's perceptions. (Nwsa Journal)

A rich addition to comparativist's library. A solid contribution to the field of teacher education and to improved methodology within the field of comparative education. (Comparative Education Review)

Gustavo Fischman’s Imagining Teachers is a most welcome addition to our understanding of teachers’ beliefs about their profession and practice. By focusing on student teachers, rather than teachers, Fischman catches them at a very revealing moment of their socialization. (Stromquist, Nelly P.)

This is a striking and unusual book. Mainly, this is because of the use of images, drawings and photographs which are used to make the arguments. The image [cover image] is powerful, as is the book, and to understand the connections you will need to see the book and see the other images inside. Do this and imagine!

In Fischman's ethnographic work we find important discussion and examples of hwo to do the work of education as well as finely nuanced data and analysis of gendered roles. This allows the reader to understand the context of Argentinian education and also to see the connections to conditions and situations in North American teacher education programs. A fine job of crisscrossing the borders by a border-crosser himself. (Journal Of Anthropological Research)
