Years ago, I took a writing class with the author Dorothy Allison. “Write your own story,” she told us, “or someone else will write it for you.” Fowler describes the beautiful, complicated métissage (braiding together) of practices related to curriculum theory and narrative theory that allow us to understand (define) ourselves and others. That definition includes the wonderful truth that we are the stories we tell. It is, however, important to remember that in this weaving together of internal and external, we are also the stories that are told about us.
