LUDKE, Menga; CRUZ, Giseli Barreto da e BOING, Luiz Alberto. Primary school teacher research under appraisal. Rev. Bras. Educ. [online]. 2009, vol.14, n.42, pp.456-468. ISSN 1413-2478. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-24782009000300005.
The text discusses teacher research with writers who perceive the possibility of this kind of research taking place. Among these writers we highlight: Stenhouse, Elliott, Huberman, Geraldi, Fiorentini, Cochran-Smith, Lytle, Anderson, Herr, André, Lüdke, Cruz, Zeichner, Diniz-Pereira, Nofke, Tardif e Zourhlal. As research tools, two papers presented by teachers at the XII Encontro Nacional de Didática e Prática de Ensino (ENDIPE, 2004) and two other papers presented at the II Seminário Internacional de Pesquisa em Educação Matemática (SIPEM, 2003) were selected. The four texts were sent to twelve judges chosen at different instances among well-reputed professionals in their respective areas of expertise, with considerable research experience and impressive academic production. The selected judges had also shown interest and understanding of teacher training, including teacher research. Based on the written views of these evaluators some theoreticalmethodological as well as practical results are presented that might contribute to enrich the debate on the limits and possibilities of teacher research.
