Action with Teacher Research
Edited by Frances Rust and Ellen Meyers (Heinemann, 2003)
Frances Rust, a professor in the Department of Teaching and Learning,
and Ellen Meyers, a nonprofit education organization, present essays about
teacher research in action. The studies in the book are part
of the work of the Teachers Network Policy Institute, whose mission
is to give teachers an active voice in education policy making.
teachers consider themselves to be researchers,
not just consumers of research, they are exercising
leadership. And when teachers form networks to
share their knowledge, they are breaking down the
obstacles that have thwarted their leadership for
so many decades," writes Adam Urbanski, the
director of the Teacher Union Reform Network, in
the book's introduction. Rust and Meyer's book
contains rich examples of teacher research in action.
