Fostering Collaboration in a School District-University Partnership: The Teachers Researching Inquiry-Based Science Project
Goodnough, Karen
Teaching Education, v15 n3 p319-330 2004
This paper describes how collaboration emerged in a school district-university partnership designed to foster teacher development in the context of elementary science education. The Teachers Researching Inquiry-Based Science project involved four elementary teachers, a school district science mentoring teacher, a school district science coordinator and a university researcher. In this qualitative action research project, a variety of research methods and sources were adopted including participant observation, interviews, documents and journals. Research outcomes describe strategies adopted to foster collaboration and teacher learning. (Contains 1 note.)
