Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The teacher researchers whose work is presented in this book use teacher and student journals, conversations, storytelling, and computer networking as vehicles for teaching and learning. The authors' interests focus on the central role of spoken and written discourse between and among teachers as they participate in reflection, action, and inquiry with their students and colleagues. This volume offers examples of reflective teacher researchers in action and makes a significant contribution to the growing body of knowledge in the area of classroom research. "Research in the Classroom" will appeal to classroom teachers at various stages of their professional developmnet, from novice teacher researchers beginning their inquiry to experienced teacher researchers with an interest in social constructivist approaches to teaching and learning. This book expands on our collective understanding of how we use oral and written language to learn and provides everyone interested in teacher research with the inspiration to continue using the classroom as a laboratory for research and exploration.
