A Rising TIDE: 

Action and Reflection on Teaching in Diverse Environments

Welcome to the online version of A Rising TIDE, the St. Mary's College Educational Studies journal.  Our mission in Educational Studies is to prepare reflective teachers to teach all kinds of learners, especially those who are often neglected in schools: poor children, children of color, children with disabilities, children who don't yet speak English.  We believe that classrooms where these children flourish are good for all kids; thus, the motto of this journal, "a rising tide lifts all boats."  The goal of A Rising TIDE is to provide a place where teachers can share our experiences in deepening our practice -- both our successes and the ideas that didn't work out as planned.  We want to extend this conversation about how to best teach all children.

The accounts in this journal are brief reports of year-long research projects.  Most of these projects are action research, in which teachers carefully study and reflect their own practices.  The projects grow out of extensive reviews of existing literature and represent contributors' best efforts to address an educational problem of particular importance to them.  More detailed reports have already been presented at the annual St. Mary's College Educational Research Symposium; this volume constitutes the symposium's proceedings.


We welcome reports about any project carried out in the local schools.  Reports should be 5000 words or less and should be submitted electronically by May 15th to Katy Arnett,  Reports are subject to blind review.  Please direct any questions, including questions about the content of format of articles, to Professor Arnett or to any member of the Educational Studies faculty.
