ARISE to the Challenge: Partnering with Urban Youth to Improve Educational Research and Learning
Brown, Tara M.
Penn GSE Perspectives on Urban Education, v7 n1 p4-14 Sum 2010
This paper examines Action Research into School Exclusion (Project ARISE), a two-year research partnership between K-12 students and university researchers. Based on the principles of participatory action research (PAR), the project intentionally brought together university researchers, K-12 students, and pre-service teachers to bridge research and practice for the purpose of improving learning across these three constituencies. This project sought to better understand and improve the schooling experiences of youth at risk for exclusion from school through disciplinary action. Using several sources of qualitative data, this paper demonstrates the application and value of the partnership at multiple levels of educational practice.
