On Teacher Inquiry: Approaches to Language and Literacy Research. Language & Literacy (An NCRLL Volume)
Goswami, Dixie; Lewis, Ceci; Rutherford, Marty; Waff, Diane
Teachers College Press
"On Teacher Inquiry" could be read as an answer to the question, "Teacher Research: What's in it for the students?" This new volume in the "NCRLL Collection" addresses the relationships among teacher research, teacher practice, and student learning. The authors observe, analyze, raise questions, design methodologies, and build relationships with colleagues to create the conditions and the contexts that advance student learning. This book offers a framework, examples, and practical guidelines for teacher researchers on how to design and conduct individual and collaborative inquiries that build new knowledge and theories about teaching and learning. "On Teacher Inquiry" offers a narrative history of social networking as productive inquiry and suggests that practitioners at all levels should continue this tradition as they create and participate in open, Internet-based venues for representing pedagogical knowledge. [Chapter topics cover: Fostering Communities of Language Learners, Using Narrative as Teacher Research, The Power of Teacher Inquiry Communities, and Building Resources for Doing Your Own Research.]
