From Practice to Research for Teachers and Administrators.
Research verifies that successful reading and writing programs need administrative support. One way to get administrative support is for teachers to convince their administrators that they know what works best for children in their classroom. Teachers can help in moving from practice to research and can gain the support of their administrators by quoting research, doing and sharing research, writing for publication, recognizing excellence, changing the curriculum, and encouraging administrators. If funding is received at Miami University, for example, a project to develop and implement a program to prepare secondary English Education students to conduct classroom research will be undertaken. Wonderful things can go on in schools if thinking teachers and administrators communicate with each other, trust their judgment, and verify their practices through research. (RS)
