In chapter one, Allen explains what "critical inquiry" came to mean for the teachers and their students, and examines the critical research, stories, and multiple perspectives on the topic.
Instead, two large lists of teachers were assembled: While we thank our research partners for their helpful guidance, the Pew Internet Project had full control over the design, implementation, analysis and writing of this survey and report.
Some 1, of the teachers are drawn from a sample of advanced placement AP high school teachers, while the remaining are from a sample of National Writing Project teachers. Our NNWP was pursuing some pretty innovative ideas for new, research-driven inservice courses back then.
With our NNWP's economic "crash," all planned growth for WritingFix went directly to the back-burner, and it has now remained there for so long that I am convinced the WritingFix website is a "completed" project.
Focus group discussions were instrumental in developing a minute online survey, which was administered in phase two of the research to a national sample of middle and high school teachers.
Some were so excited to be asked. Survey findings are complemented by insights from a series of online and in-person focus groups with middle and high school teachers and students in gradesconducted between November, and February, There is also a wide distribution in the age and experience levels of participating teachers.
The teacher-built lessons that were truly outstanding, well, they needed to be shared. But it skews towards educators who teach some of the most academically successful students in the country.
As I head towards graduation and begin the process of deciding what path to take towards teacher certification, these Saturday Seminars have been invaluable in allowing me to learn from experienced teachers in a collaborative environment where they discuss the challenges and successes they experience daily in a classroom.
Teachers were asked to speak in depth about teaching research and writing to middle and high school students today, the challenges they encounter, and how they incorporate digital technologies into their classrooms and assignments. The report's survey participants include the NWP's nationwide network of teacher-leaders.
Of these 2, teachers, 2, completed the entire survey; all percentages reported are based on those answering each question. Dena and I are both still creating new lessons and posting them online at our own websites.
As a group, the 2, teachers participating in the survey comprise a wide range of subject areas, experience levels, geographic regions, school type and socioeconomic level, and community type detailed sample characteristics are available in the Methods section of this report.
WritingFix, however, should NOT go away; Dena and I decided that we would take over paying the bill for all annual fees that keep the website online and free-to-use.
This particular sample is quite diverse geographically, by subject matter taught, and by school size and community characteristics. I like it so much, in fact, that when I was asked to start designing professional development courses on writing instruction way back when, I jumped at the chance.
These teachers and their students may have resources and support available to them—particularly in terms of specialized training and access to digital tools—that are not available in all educational settings.Every Saturday workshop gives me inspiration and ideas on how to launch writing pieces, engage students in their writing, and more importantly, how I need to change my strategies and teaching techniques to be a positive influence in their writing adventure.
