I agree with you Kara. But I feel that researching in my classroom has not only empowered my students, but has also empowered me to really know what level my students are at,what thier interests are and this information allows me to plan instruction based more on their needs and interests. Sometimes I think teachers are asked to implement techniques in their classroom without understanding why or how the techniques came about or why the procedures are even being required. By learning how to conduct research within our own classrooms we are able to better make this more of a routine and part of our daily instruction and the students not even realize what they are teaching us. I know that this project has also helped me become a more reflective teacher to help improve my classroom procedures, especially when it comes to selecting books that interest my students to get them reading.
