Teachers doing classroom-based research: overview and practical possibilities

P. 70-84.

This paper presents a practical approach for language teachers to do small-scale

classroom research as a way of developing understandings of themselves and their

practice, potentially leading to re-designing of their activity. The approach draws on the

traditions of reflective practice, which initiates the inquiry into the classroom life by the

action research medium, as well as on more innovative heuristic tools for fostering

teachers’ serendipity. The latter suggests focusing on the teachers’ emotions.
