Montclair State University Network for Educational Renewal

Descriptive Inquiry Research Project
Dr. Maria Cioe'-Pena (Montclair State University) is seeking school level participation in a year long study to begin in fall 2021, as follows:
I am interested in finding a school partner with a predominantly Latinx population from across the Latin American diaspora that can engage in developing a collaborative teacher community grounded in descriptive inquiry (DI). The goal of the project is to see if a process like DI can lead to academic growth and increased social-emotional support for Latinx English Language Learners (ELLs) and students with disabilities. Additionally, I am interested in understanding how the collaborative community developed through the DI processes can help teachers feel more supported thus leading to increased teacher satisfaction and teacher retention. 
This would be a great opportunity for a school to develop their own in-house community of expert teachers who can lead the charge in decreasing inequality for children of color, ELLs, and children with disabilities within their schools and potentially their district as a whole. 
Thanks again for your ongoing support.
