Teacher Research as a Mode of Delivery for Professional Development
Kreuger, Elizabeth
Ontario Action Researcher, v8 n1 article 3 2005
In the fall of 2003, the Eastern Townships School Board grades 5 & 6 teachers were faced with implementing a one-to-one laptop initiative, a new provincial curriculum, a balanced literacy framework and a language initiative whereby the students would receive more of their instruction time in a second language. To guard against Initiative Overload, the education consultants delivered the necessary professional development using an ongoing teacher research model in order to merge the four initiatives into one understandable and doable project. This mode of delivery allowed the consultants to adjust to the diverse and ever changing needs of the teachers. (Contains 3 figures and 9 endnotes.)
