This issue will consist of articles describing the purposes, processes, and products of teacher action research. Effective teacher research empowers teachers, giving them greater confidence in their ability to individually and collectively promote change (Downhower et al., 1990; Nihlen, 1992). Several terms for teacher research are encountered in literature, including: action research, practitioner research, teacher-as-scholar, practical inquiry, interactive research, classroom inquiry, and practice-centered inquiry (Downhower, Melvin, & Sizemore, 1990; Williamson, 1992). Although these terms may not be completely interchangeable, a common thread running through various conceptions of teacher research is that the teacher is an active constructor of knowledge rather than a passive consumer of it (Miller & Pine, 1990; Williamson, 1992).
