ABSTRACT
The article examines the importance of teacher lore for the understanding of curriculum and teacher supervision in Chicago, Illinois. It notes the ability of teachers to refine their own values and beliefs about teaching, learning and knowledge. It finds that such values can help teachers improve their teaching strategies and approaches. It reveals the findings of an interview with more 40 teachers which can contribute to a knowledge base that can inform supervision, curriculum development and teaching.
