Supporting Teacher Research: Inquiry, Dialogue & Engagement

STRIDE is a 50-month research project funded by the National Science Foundation Grant ESI-0554579.

This study seeks to answer the following research questions on an existing professional development (PD) project entitled Partnership for Reform in Secondary Science and Mathematics (PRiSSM):

How do the interactions between teachers engaged in collaborative inquiry in a Professional Learning Community (PLC) contribute to new understandings of teaching and learning mathematics and/or science?

What are the ways in which facilitators and school/district administrators, systems, and structures interact to frame and enact the notion of support for teachers engaged in PLC work?

How do school-based PLCs impact students’ mathematical and/or scientific achievement?
