Call for Award Nominees

Teacher as Researcher Award

The Teacher as Researcher Special Interest Group (TAR– SIG) of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) invites submissions of teacher research by members of the TAR SIG that exemplify excellence and that typify the SIG’s mission to support research done in schools by PreK-12 practitioners on their own practice.

We encourage our winner to come to AERA and make a 10 minute presentation about his or her study.

Teacher Research projects completed during the 2015-2016 year will be eligible for consideration. The committee chair must receive submissions by Monday, December 5, 2016. The committee will not consider late or incomplete nominations. The committee chair will contact award finalists by the third week of January 2017. The finalists will be asked to send a 15 page summary of the project in PDF format to the Committee Chairperson.
