The objective of this paper is to report the most recent results from an ongoing, multi-year research initiative at a large Research 1 University in the Southwestern United States. The purpose of this line of inquiry is to learn about how novice teachers develop narrative understandings of teaching. In particular, this study explores the cognitive understandings and personal sense-making strategies used by novices to "story" the classroom events they routinely observe in the field.
