The Teacher and Educational Change: The Decision to Participate and Produce.
Finch, Mary Ellen
This report describes the experiences of four junior high school teachers who engaged in the education change process. Further, it analyzes reasons as well as consequences of their decision to participate in the development and implementation of an innovative program. Using the methodology of participant observation, including observation, interviews, and direct participation, the author obtained data that suggests that teachers become involved in educational change for highly pragmatic as well as ideological reasons. Implications and recommendations for teachers and administrators are offered. (Author)
