The University of Georgia is holding their annual Journal of Language and Literacy Education (JoLLE) this Saturday, and my co-creator and friend, Nick Thompson, will be presenting on The Teacher Casebook project.

Breakout Sessions 1, Saturday, 9:35 – 10:25 am
The Case for Teacher Case Reports: Connecting Teacher Experiences to Teacher Research
Kyle Jones (Gwinnett County Public Schools) & Nick Thompson (The University of Georgia)
Keywords: Teacher Case Report, Education Research, Teacher Writing, Professional Development
Abstract: Teachers can feel their experiences in classrooms and schools are isolated, unique, or disjointed from the experiences of others. Bringing educators’ stories and experiences into an open, public forum, this session introduces participants to teacher case report writing. These cases share teachers’ lived experiences in lesson planning, teaching, and relationships, couching these experiences in current education research. Participants will have an opportunity to write their own case and learn more about the ongoing project.
