EDM 584 Educators as Writers: Life Writing, Narrative and Publishing (2 credits)

Part of becoming a researcher is becoming a writer. The role of writing in the educator research process can be a transformative one as researchers use writing to explore their own educational histories as a way to identify and analyze the ways in which their schooling experiences affect their current teaching beliefs and practices. Through a process of writing activities, workshops, assignments, and conferences students will not only investigate the ways that their teacher identities are affected by their educational histories, but also how to write a teacher research study and potentially publish their work as teachers. This course builds on the content from Educational Foundations, and Contemporary Issues in Education.
