Abstract

Research for teachers demystifies the research process and helps teachers appreciate that their role requires this understanding for two reasons: first, they need to be reasearchers of their own classroom practice; second, they are consumers or reasearch and need to understand how it works in order to know what to trust. Written in accessible and engaging style, Research for educators is an excellent introduction for teachers to the world of research.
Aims to do two things: to emphasise that teachers are consumers of research and therefore need to understand how research is conducted to make more informed decisions about the trustworthiness of research findings, and to emphasise that teachers are researchers in their classroom, operating as reflective practitioners.
