As I mentioned before, on my whatsapp group informally I am working with many teachers  regarding action research. In this year those who have  selected for AINET2020 conference for paper presentation, poster presentation are secondary and primary teachers. They are a part of CHESS, TEJAS project. I mentored them on personal chat, whatsapp video and discussion call. I have been attending EVO Classroom Research online. This helped me for framing RQs, data collection tools, plan the research, doing reflective practice and discover findings.My mentees have shared their work on fb, You tube , twitter. 
This online platform is essential for teachers who are working many challenging conditions.

Dear All,

Below are the links to a series of books containing teacher research reports. All of them are excellent, and many of them are not just concise and methodical accounts, but also a joy and a source of inspiration. The inquisitiveness and flexibility of the teachers telling the stories (often working under challenging circumstances) are truly amazing. Enjoy.

Hi everyone!

Mentoring Teachers to Research Their Classrooms
(chapters 1-9) is in my opinion a detailed manuscript written in a way which is inspirational for a wide readership of potential teacher-research mentors, mentors and administrators thinking of implementing teacher-research schemes in their educational institutions. The clarity with which chapters 1-9 have been written and organised makes it a very user-friendly resource for all mentors. I am eager to read the following chapters!

I would like to focus on Chapter 6 and the importance of reflecting and engaging in research into our practice as mentors to become more effective while supporting and guiding teacher-researchers. We mentors come up with different concerns (problematic situations, puzzles) while mentoring. Thus by reflecting on the particular issue we want to explore, developing our own research questions and gathering data to answer those questions, reflecting and deciding whether action research would be suitable we are likely to become more skilled mentors. The findings of our own research projects will offer tools and guidelines for us to improve as mentors to the benefit of all the participants of the mentoring process.

That's all for now! 
All the best, Mariana Serra

Re: #week3 Mentor a particular teacher to decide on types of data to match their research questions - and share your reflections please! #week3

Hi, Irene, it's good you are not rushing it but providing patient. consistent support. If there are no other teachers around that have already done classroom research (and could share their experience), would it help this lady to read EAR stories that are easily accessible? In the FB group, we have the link to the latest Champion teachers volume. When reading some of the previous volumes, I was always surprised how a simple, but very pertinent problem could be explored in a thorough and rather enjoyable manner. I have found that sometimes teachers think research is about grand theories and discoveries and do not assume that their everyday problems (large or mixed ability classes, multilingual backgrounds) merit investigation. I would love to know what the two of you will come up with in the end. Once you sensitise your mentees, they tend to see emerging issues everywhere in their classes :-)...


Re: #week3 Mentor a particular teacher to decide on types of data to match their research questions - and share your reflections please! #week3

 

I´ve been working with the teacher these days but I´ve realized that it´s been really hard for her to think about her research questions. I do believe this is happening as she´s never done any kind of research before. We´re now in the process of thinking together, reflecting and trying to get to some RQ so as to be able to decide on the type of data to gather. 

Regards...Irene

Dear Nahla,

Once again, it's nice to see how well you're managing your work with your mentees. I have always been fascinated by classrooms. When I was a volunteer in Ethiopia, I used every surface imaginable to cover the bare walls. Students collected and displayed sayings on English and language learning, I put up large-size letter notes on the classic bus-buses pronunciation issue, we used flattened cardboard boxes for artwork and created a huge poster of the informal hierarchy at the university where I worked using the photos we took of the most important people: the secretaries, cleaning ladies and security guards were at the top (as typical gatekeepers) ;-). So, I think, artifacts are extremely important. They help you supply a 'thick' description of your context, and often reveal unexpected things. Also, they don't require extra effort, they are part of your everyday work as a teacher, and looking at them from a qualitative research perspective can be refreshing.

Dear Richard,

This week, students came to me with questions about data collection methods and most of them are going for interviews, some are doing focus groups and others a combination of interviews and collection of artefacts. 

I think the most difficult part for me was keeping track of all the research ideas and the possible data collection methods. I found the table you provided in chapter 9 very useful and I'll be using it next week to organize everything.

Dear Richard,

I find the idea of a schedule very useful for students. I use a Gantt Chart to help students plan all their research chapters, but focusing on data collection seems necessary which is why I plan to edit the chart and add subsections for the data collection procedure to include: gaining permissions, design of tools and execution.

Hi,

I have found the list in chapter 9 very useful! Many times I struggled to provide examples in a systematic way. Thanks Richard!

Here it is:

1. a teacher’s own written reflections and/or notes 2. other people’s written ideas on the topic 3. notes from informal conversations with colleagues 4. reflective writing by students 5. notes or recordings of focus group discussions 6. notes or recordings of interviews/chats with individuals 7. responses to a questionnaire 8. lesson plans and materials 9. lesson recordings 10. notes made by a critical friend (i.e. a sympathetic observer, e.g. a colleague) about your lesson 11. pictures of your class 12. students’ performance on tasks (written or recorded).
