Teachers' Writing Groups: Collaborative Inquiry and Reflection for Professional Growth

About the Book
How can teachers—in whatever setting they work— effectively facilitate their own professional development through collaborative writing and reflection? Teachers’ Writing Groups addresses this question by focusing on a community of educators that uses social writing as a vehicle for learning. This book delves into questions about writing, reflection, and professional development as an interactive social process.
