Creating a Culture of Intellectual Inquiry in Teacher Inquiry Groups.
Hammerman, James K.
Creating communities of discourse among teachers that tread the "delicate middle ground" of theory linked to actual classroom practice can serve the purpose of promoting teachers' ongoing professional development. Yet both teachers and teacher educators are navigating relatively uncharted territory in attempting to develop such communities. This paper examines some of the features of such a community of discourse, the dilemmas faced in creating and maintaining it, and poses some questions for further investigation. (Author)
