Developing Voice: Teacher Research in Bilingual Classrooms.
Nevarez-La Torre, Aida A.
Bilingual Research Journal, v23 n4 p451-70 Fall 1999
Examines the experiences of a group of urban, bilingual teacher-researchers. Considers how teacher research raised teachers' awareness about political dimensions of their own practices and how these teachers took steps to improve their practices and school settings. Proposes that teacher research empowers teachers to think and act like "transformative intellectuals" in their politicized work environments. (Contains 31 references.) (Author/SV)
