Readers Researching Their Reading: Creating a Community of Inquiry
Parsons, Linda T.
Language Arts, v86 n4 p257-267 Mar 2009
In this article, the author explores how a group of ten fourth-grade students who were avid readers became a community of inquiry. The primary goal of this study was to document the children's reading engagement: how they created, entered, and sustained the world of the story. This article also reflects the impact of three elements--data collection, group discussion, and positioning as a researchers--on student empowerment. (Contains 5 figures.)
