Review:

"Here's a book that shows the way for any aspiring teacher-researcher and provides an essential resource for those who lead teacher research groups. This is a volume that belongs in every teacher-training institution library and in the teacher resource center of every school district.

"The authors are themselves teacher-researchers and understand the pitfalls and the dedication that are part of the process, as well as the joy of completing a classroom research project.

"I wish this volume had been available when I began my own journey as a teacher-researcher." -- Bob Tierney, co-author with Anne Wotring of

"Teacher-Researchers at Work is an invaluable guide through the often perplexing and anxiety-ridden process of teacher research. It takes its text from the works and practices of teacher-researchers themselves. It is honest, thorough, encouraging and intelligent." -- Jane Juska, teacher research leader and winner of The Education Writers of America Award for best article in an educational journal
