This practical, "how-to" text, informed by current ideas on teacher research, outlines and illustrates strategies and experiences to foster literacy teachers' abilities to conduct action research in their classrooms or schools. Part I overviews the theory and significance of teacher research and provides a description and rationale for the various activities and experiences that support learning to become teacher researchers. Part II features chapters written by a diverse group of teacher-researchers, interwoven with short commentaries by the editors that address particularly pertinent features or aspects of these reports for novice teacher-researchers in the process of learning to do teacher inquiry.
