I detail the techniques I use to incorporate narrative inquiry into a methods course for preservice English teachers. The aim is to encourage students to think about their identities as teachers and language learners, and to view the class itself as an unfolding narrative. Specific techniques include narrative frames that access reflections on the course as a whole and written assignments that interrogate the social contexts in which teachers live and work.
