Research: Professional Development

Question: What is some needed research in teachers’ development?

Answer: “Suggests that there is a need for further ethnographic accounts of the teacher’s work which focus on processes of personal and professional development.” MKR Chance-Reay. 1984. P. 204.

Comment: I would like to suggest the use of professional articles as a way of studying teachers’ development, personally and professionally. Teachers often begin their articles with problems that they have encountered. What is the nature of these problems? How did they resolve them? RayS.

Title: “Annotated Bibliography of Research in the Teaching of English.” JD Marshall and RK Durst. Research in the Teaching of English (May 1985), pp. 183-204.
