ONLINE JOURNALS

For a list of online journals, visit the Teacher Inquiry Communities Network resource page.


"Publishing and Research Resources for Teachers" was developed by Ann Dobie working with the Teacher Inquiry Communities (TIC) Network. TIC links writing project sites interested in developing leadership and resources for teacher inquiry. The network provides support at various stages of the inquiry process, increases the opportunity for sustained dialogue among sites developing teacher research, and expands dissemination opportunities for studies of practice. Find out more about TIC at: www.nwp.org/cs/public/print/programs/tic.
