MOURA, Eliana Perez Gonçalves de. Managing the work of teaching: the "dramatic" use of self. Educ. rev. [online]. 2009, n.33, pp. 157-169. ISSN 0104-4060. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-40602009000100011.
This study discusses the collective processes adopted by teachers to produce themselves as subjects of work and engendered at a dimension of work experience that escapes the logic of work organization and school management practices. In-service training models are discussed in that they are conceived as strategies of control and standardization of teaching practices. Teaching should be managed as an action inherent to experience, which depends on choices made from a series of hierarchically ranked acts, objective and values, as well as on the dramatic tension between the use of self "for oneself" and "for others".
