Teacher Assemblage is a groundbreaking report in the tradition of fieldwork in philosophy, using Michel Foucault's and Gilles Deleuze's ideas to better understand how accountability policy affected teachers. The case study examines different vectors of power and demonstrates how teachers interacted with each other, and interacted with their immediate policy environments. This unique book provides readers with grounded insights into Foucault's and Deleuze's ideas by paying close attention to the macro- and micro- political worlds of schools as teachers struggle with new forms of performance accountability. The book illustrates ideas of power, politics, and policy with a unique use of surrealist art to illustrate the philosophical ideas at play in the case study. The book will have a wide appeal to teachers, teacher educators, educational researchers, policy and curriculum scholars, art aficionados, and those interested in the thoughts of Michel Foucault and Gilles Deleuze.Wilson, the fifth-grade teacher and vice-principal, stated that test scores were used to monitor participants and the ... were used to surveil teachers: The district requires teachers to turn all their benchmark scores in three times a year. ...
