Tip:
You can help teachers by facilitating their playing different roles in a group.

  • Form groups with six teachers.
  • Hand out strips of paper that define the role for each person in the group:
  • Have each person read the same article about one research topic and highlight points based on their role.
  • Have people report their findings to the others in their group from the role they are playing.
  • Make sure someone is a recorder and gathers the information from the group to give to you.
  1. Research: focus on what the research reports.
  2. Learning: focus on what will be learned if research is implemented in their schools.
  3. Positive: focus on the positive aspects found in the research.
  4. Negative: focus on the challenges and obstacles found in the research.
  5. Reactions: focus on how others will react to the research (consider the teachers, students, board members, administrators and other community members).
  6. Understanding: focus on what stakeholders will need to know to understand the research.
