MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book values the work of school-based literacy educators, positioning them as knowledgeable of their practice and capable of research. The text illustrates how literacy educators can take an action-oriented, research stance in their classrooms with the goal of transforming practices, contexts, and lives. Sailors and Hoffman provide links to literature and classroom-based examples to show novice teacher researchers ways they can navigate practice-based research designs. I look forward to using this resource to support graduate students and in-service teachers as they 'take up' the position of researcher in their practice."

--Lori McKee, St. Francis Xavier University, Canada
