How can teachers in whatever setting they work effectively facilitate their own professional development through collaborative writing and reflection? Teachers Writing Groups addresses this question by focusing on a community of educators that uses social writing as a vehicle for learning. This book delves into questions about writing, reflection, and professional development as an interactive social process.
