These publications and World Wide Web sites offer some additional information on the teacher-research movement:

  • Teacher-Researchers at Work, a book published in 1999 by the National Writing Project in Berkeley, Calif. The editors are Marion S. MacLean and Marian M. Mohr, both of whom helped found the teacher-research network in Fairfax County, Va.
  • “The Teacher Research Movement: A Decade Later,” an article published in the journal Educational Researcher in October 1999. The authors are Marilyn Cochran-Smith and Susan L. Lytle. Cochran-Smith and Lytle also wrote Inside/Outside: Teacher Research and Knowledge, a 1993 book published by Teachers College Press. The two, both university-based researchers, also edit a series of books on practitioner inquiry for the same publisher.
  • “Beyond the Divide of Teacher Research and Academic Research,” by Kenneth M. Zeichner, published in 1995 in the journal Teachers and Teaching.
  • Another Web site, this one maintained by teacher-researchers in Madison, Wis., can be found at www.madison.k12.wi.us/sod/car. The Madison school district also produces printed compilations of its teachers’ work. Information on obtaining copies of those reports is available from Cathy Caro-Bruce at (608) 663-4958.
