Gender Equity in an Elementary Classroom: The Power of Praxis in Action Research

WithRobyn S. Lock and Leslie Turner Minarik (United States)

For the past nine years Leslie Minarik has participated in monthly conversations with a small group of colleagues and peers who support each other in teacher research and related school projects. This peer group has spent these years together as teacher researchers, learning to teach and to conduct research on their own teaching. Their initial work (the first six years) resulted in the publication of the book, Teacher Research and Urban Literacy Education. Lessons and Conversations in Feminist Key (Hollingsworth, 1994).
