Teacher study groups are a wonderful tool for building a reflective, research-based community within schools. This video provides a window into the study group process as literacy specialist Jennifer Allen facilitates a group exploring ways to improve writing workshops. Showing excerpts from the fall and spring meetings of the group, the video details the evolution of thinking and discussion as practices are introduced and tried in the classroom, and as reflections on those successes and failures are shared among the members of the group. The extensive viewing guide includes sample formats, suggestions of books and videos for groups, and detailed advice for launching and sustaining study groups over time.
