Teacher-Researchers at Work.
MacLean, Marion S.; Mohr, Marian M.
This book describes the essential components of any teacher-researcher group. Part I describes an experience, a process, that aids teacher-researchers in completing a study. Part II reexamines the issues and questions surrounding teacher research, as they have both shifted and steadied over the years. Part III consists of research articles written by teacher-researchers: "Learning School: Learning To Write" (Bob Ingalls); "Independent Reading: Just Do It!" (Julia Lindquist); "Drawing: Another Path to Understanding" (Theresa Manchey); "Targeted Students: The Fifty Kids" (Marian M. Mohr); "What Happens When Students Engage in Peer Interaction during the Writing Process?" (Diane Painter); "Becoming Members of the Math Club" (Betsy Sanford); and "The Gong Show: Some Things I Learned about Evaluating Writing" (Tony Tendero). Part IV presents resources for teacher-researchers: networks, both online and off, where other teacher-researchers offer discussion, response, and drafts of their work; information on grants available to teacher-researchers; descriptions of courses and contexts for conducting teacher research; and a bibliographic essay of suggested reading.
