IMPROVING OUR PRACTICE: COLLABORATIVE CLASSROOM ACTION RESEARCH IN LESOTHO Janet Stuart with Mahlape Morojele and Pulane Lefoka

In keeping with action research traditions, this paper has been written

collaboratively. It contains three "voices," all speaking in the first person. The

"P of the first part, the first case study, and of the concluding comments and

reflections, is Janet Stuart, a teacher educator who worked for a year as a con-

sultant with a team of five Basotho teachers of development studies at post-

primary level. The second voice is that of Mahlape Morojele, writing as a pri-

mary teacher-trainer and one of that original team. The third voice, Pulane

Lefoka, writes as a researcher who helped set up a subsequent project sup-

porting primary teachers to develop instructional self-reflection skills.
