How Do I Write Up My Research?

How do I write up my research?

In this chapter we present a case for teachers ‘going public’ with their enquiries (Hatch et al., 2005; Stenhouse, 1985). We discuss reservations expressed by critics and advocates of the teacher research movement. We then outline ways in which teacher researchers share their work in oral, print and digital media. We consider factors which influence the products of teacher research and offer guidance and examples to support the development of conference papers and poster presentations. We look at common components of the teacher research report and suggest strategies to help you initiate and sustain your writing for different audiences through research reports, articles for professional magazines and scholarly journals.
