A Case Study of Five Science Teachers’ Understandings of Classroom Research and Their Willingness to Become Active Classroom Researchers

Rawatee Maharaj-Sharma


This article reports on the views of five secondary school science teachers who accepted the challenge to explore the self-assessment aspect of their practice with specific regard to their understandings of classroom research and their willingness to actively initiate and engage in classroom research.
