Abstract:

"This book is testament to collaboration being a process that melds age, geographical location, experiences and qualifications. Emerging from a professional conversation in which a dream was shared and later explored and nurtured, this book provides a forum through which a group of emerging researchers from the Sam Sharpe Teachers' College in St. James, Jamaica, display research as their way of impacting and transforming practice. The teacher researchers are between the ages of 18 and 50 years old and graduated with degrees in different specializations. The emerging researchers are graduates of the Sam Sharpe Teachers' College who readily consented to sharing their research papers with 'the world'. We, the editors, interpret their consent as acknowledgement that pre-service teacher research is not confined to being a coursework grade but rather, is a significant step in their journey as teacher practitioners. This book therefore is a source of motivation to pre-service teachers, in-service educators and professionals who need to develop and demonstrate an "I can" disposition towards their practice"--
