About this book


“Making the Moment Matter is a wonderful contribution to the literature on meaningful teacher education. Grounded in Nel Noddings’ relational ethic of care, this finely written book explores both the moral foundations and the lived realities of facilitating teacher development through pedagogical caring. Trout’s theoretically rich, carefully designed, and engaging inquiry could not be more timely. In an era when reform talk in teaching and teacher education is increasingly characterized by reference to outcomes, accountability and “value added” measures, this book reminds us that better teaching is a process centered on caring relationships. Her work has a great deal to offer many different readers—educational researchers interested in models of well-crafted studies of practice, teacher educators looking for insights into the complex work of teacher development, and others who wish to learn more about the manner of relationships that stand at the heart of education.”
