Earlier this year, Heinemann hosted a symposium for its 2014–2015 class of Fellows. Each Fellow gave a presentation on his or her action research project, and afterward sat down to answer some questions. Today, Julie Nora explains the inspiration for her work, and how her action research project has changed her interactions in the classroom. Videos below after the break.

"What inspired you to do this research?"

 

 

"How has your research affected your relationship with educators at your school?"
