Children and Teachers Becoming Researchers: A Project in India
Annamaria Pinter (University of Warwick, UK) and Rama Mathew (Delhi University, India)
Research in ELT classrooms worldwide has been completely adult-dominated and children’s potential as active contributors has been ignored. A radical change of perspective, we suggest, is that children can be involved as active research participants or even as co-researchers alongside their teachers. We report on an ongoing project conducted in Indian primary schools where children are enabled to become researchers.
