Science Teachers as Researchers

It is a statement about the growing interest in teacher research that this volume includes a separate chapter addressing science teacher research. The 1994 Handbook of Research on Science Teaching and Learning did not review different research approaches (Gabel, 1994). And although the 1998 International Handbook for Science Education did address these topics, teacher research or teacher action research was mentioned only briefly in chapters about qualitative research, science teacher education, and grassroots equity initiatives (Fraser & Tobin, 1998).
