Teachers as Researchers: An Expanding Role for Special Needs Educators.
Pershey, Monica Gordon
Noting that teachers' research is found in personal journals, professional conversations, computer networking, formal research studies, and publications or presentations, this paper answers, in outline form, a series of questions on the expanding role for special needs educators. These questions are: what "teacher as researcher" means; why teachers are becoming researchers in their own teaching environments; what (or who) the subjects of teacher research are; what some of the most common research methods and designs are that teachers use when researching their environments; how teacher researchers can find and frame a research question; what resources (articles, books, and other publications) can be consulted to learn how to become a teacher researcher, and what sources of support exist for teachers' research; and how teachers can start planning and networking today. Contains 34 references. (RS)
