Wondering through Teaching
Kerr, Jo-Anne
English Journal, v96 n5 p64-69 May 2007
Jo-Anne Kerr relies on teacher-research practices to discover insights for making her classes more beneficial to "resistant learners." She shares her experience of observing two previously struggling male vocational-technical students, conducting informal and formal interviews with them throughout the year, and collecting data from their portfolios and reading logs to enrich her support for them and her understanding of their motivation for learning.
