Voices of Practitioners

Voices of Practitioners: Teacher Research in Early Childhood Education is an online peer-reviewed journal in which teachers provide a critical perspective on their roles in children's development and learning.
Voices of Practitioners disseminates early childhood teachers’ systematic study of an aspect of their own classroom practice. Teacher research offers a means for teachers to examine their questions about teaching and learning, reflect with colleagues, and make improvements in their teaching practice.
