Teacher research is systematic intentional inquiry conducted on a matter of concern to the individual teacher-researcher and relevant to the profession more broadly. MAT students identify an interest of concern and begin to frame a question in December/January. Over the next several months, they refine the question, develop a plan for data collection, typically including an action component, and begin to collect data-- all the while carrying on their teaching responsibilities. For several more months, they continue to collect data, begin the process of data analysis, identify findings, frame conclusions, and pose questions for further inquiry. Finally all of the MAT students present their original research papers.
The research presentation is also the fourth and final Snapshots of Emerging Practice event. Read more about the Snapshots series >>
