This study examines a collaborative project between two fifth-grade dual language teachers (English-Spanish) and a university researcher as they engaged children in a study of memoir. The collaborators taught a twelve-week unit of study of memoir which also involved the creation of i-movies. In collaborative research, teacher researchers and a university researcher engage jointly in examining some aspect of classroom life and learning. In collaborative projects, the questions of the teachers and the university researcher are both of importance
The questions that guided the study focused on the dynamics of the ongoing collaboration, the role of the university researcher in the collaboration and the unfolding nature of the teachers' questions. The teachers' questions asked about the use of culturally relevant literature in the memoir study, the children's responses to the presentation of crafting techniques, and the role of technology in the study. The university researcher utilized Erickson's (1986) interpretive methodology and theory of reality as social construction to conduct data gathering and analysis
The findings were as follows: In the collaborative process, there is no clear beginning or end. Relationships built over time are central to collaboration. The teachers' questions did not remain static; rather they evolved in a spiral fashion
