When We Inquire into Our Own Practice: An Early Childhood Teacher Research Group
Murphy, Debra; Bryant, Holly; Ingram, Heidi
New Educator, v10 n1 p28-34 2014
Every day, early childhood teachers confront issues, problems, and concerns in their classrooms. Sometimes they do nothing. Sometimes they use trial and error. Sometimes they go to a workshop or read an article. We have found a way to intentionally and systematically research and answer our own questions and to enrich our own professional development through teacher research. Teacher research provides early childhood educators with a strategy that supports reflective thinking and practice. This article describes the experience of a small group of early childhood teacher researchers. How is it different from other required assessments? How is it different from other professional development?
