Research at schools? Why?

‘The research engaged school is one in which teachers believe it is in their interest, and in the interest of their pupils, to be critical of received wisdom, to be sceptical of easy answers, to have a desire for evidence and to foster ‘aggressive curiosity’. It recognises that, at every level, there is research of some kind already ongoing, and finds ways of supporting this endeavour and making it more rigorous, transparent and of value, not only to the school itself but to a wider constituency.’ (Handscomb and MacBeath, 2003)

About the Term "Teacher Research"

 

 

Marion MacLean and Marian Mohr (1999) explain that the term teacher-researcher is an important term to them because it has redefined their roles as teachers.

Teachers are subjective insiders involved in classroom instruction as they go about their daily routines of instructing students, grading papers, taking attendance, evaluating their performance as well as looking at the curriculum. Traditional educational researchers who develop questions and design studies around those questions and conduct research within the schools are considered objective outside observers of classroom interaction. But when teachers become teacher-researchers, the "traditional descriptions of both teachers and researchers change. Teacher-researchers raise questions about what they think and observe about their teaching and their students' learning. They collect student work in order to evaluate performance, but they also see student work as data to analyze in order to examine the teaching and learning that produced it"

A Quote..

By three methods we may learn wisdom:

first, by reflection, which is noblest;

second, by imitation, which is easiest;

and third by experience, which is the bitterest.

(Confucius)
