Teacher as Researcher SIG 126
SIG Purpose
The AERA Teacher as Researcher SIG is dedicated to supporting research done in schools by PreK-12 practitioners on their own practice.  While this work can be conducted in collaboration with other researchers, it should reflect equity of initiation, data collection, analysis and presentation, with teachers sharing primary credit and responsibility.  We are the only special interest group whose core purpose is the articulation and representation of classroom teachers' perspectives by the classroom teachers themselves. 

Message from SIG Chair


Welcome to AERA’s web page for the Teacher-as-Researcher SIG!

We hope we will see you in Philadelphia, PA for the 2014 Annual Meeting.  To see our exciting schedule of sessions, please press the 'Meetings & Other Events' button on the left.

It’s our aim that the Teacher as Researcher SIG can be a place of sustained and positive learning in this time when high stakes testing has become the standard in classrooms across the country. This work is important because when teachers conduct research, they have the opportunity to grapple with dilemmas, try solutions, reflect on data, and generate understandings that have the potential to constructively impact students’ learning.  Creating such places for inquiry is a vital step in improving the quality of our teaching and developing positive learning contexts for children. 

Please encourage your colleagues and teacher friends to join our SIG, submit proposals, and attend our sessions at the Annual Meeting.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you in Philadelphia at the Annual Meeting

Megan Blumenreich, EdD
