Title: Teachers as researchers: a call to action
Authors: Potter, Gillian
Issue Date: 2001
Citation: Teaching and Learning, 22(1), 13-22
Abstract: Teacher research is systematic, intentional inquiry by teachers about their own school and classroom work. It is systematic in the sense that teachers use ordered ways of gathering and recording data, documenting experiences inside and outside the classroom and making some kind of written record. It is intentional to the extent that the research activity is planned rather than spontaneous so that there is a deliberate inquiry or further discovery as the questions generate the research. It reflects teachers' desires to make sense of their experiences,to adopt a learning stance or openness toward classroom life.
