The Art of Classroom Inquiry: A Handbook for Teacher-Researchers

The Art of Classroom Inquiry: A Handbook for Teacher-Researchers Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Glenda Bissex writes, "A teacher-researcher may start out not with a hypothesis to test, but a wondering to pursue." The Art of Classroom Inquiry is the first handbook published specifically for teacher-researchers, showing teachers how they can carefully and systematically pursue their wonderings through research. In crisp, jargon-free prose, Ruth Hubbard and Brenda Power present the nuts and bolts of research strategies. In these pages you'll find a wealth of interviewing and note-taking techniques, methods for categorizing data, and avenues for publishing research. The text includes "extensions" at the end of each chapter — hands-on activities designed to help teachers test out research methods and hone their skills.

Hubbard and Power have worked for several years with teacher-researchers from across the country. This book puts a human face on research. Over eighty examples of teachers evolving as researchers are featured. Their stories of individual growth demonstrate why and how teacher research is transforming the ways teachers view themselves and their classrooms.

Much more than just a collection of research techniques, The Art of Classroom Inquiry is a celebration of what is possible in classrooms when teachers pursue their wonderings, asking and answering their own questions about learning.

Synopsis:

The Art of Classroom Inquiry shows teachers how they can carefully and systematically pursue their wonderings through research.
