A CASE STUDY OF THREE TEACHERS IN THE KENTUCKY
TELECOMMUNICATIONS WRITING PROJECT

By

Susan Nelson Wood


May 1997


Chair: Dr. Linda Lamme


Major Department:


Instruction & Curriculum


Teacher networking is a critical feature of school reform.


This case study, conducted


over a three-year period, explored the impact of telecommunications networking on the


professional development of teachers.


Special funding enabled teachers, with no prior


expertise but required by educational mandates to integrate technology and writing, to

form a private electronic network connecting their students and themselves.

Methods used to describe the teachers-only discussion and planning area of the larger

network and to analyze the nature of teacher learning over the duration of the project


were interpretive.


Data included field notes compiled from the online discourse, tape


recordings and transcriptions of interviews, artifacts from the project, informal surveys,








The analysis of three years of online discourse-- over a thousand notes in which

teachers talked freely about their personal and professional lives-- described the network

as an egalitarian discourse community whose main function, mutual support, resulted in


significant teacher learn:

and created shared-space

content and innovation.


ng.


During the first year participants mastered the technology


. In the second year they focused far more on curriculum

The final year they wrote for publication and presented at state


and national conferences.

A closer look at the individual participation of three of the teachers revealed three


areas of teacher learning: writing, technology, and professional development.


Results


indicate that teachers varied in their commitment to the network and their learning from


participation.


Although all three involved their students and participated consistently


throughout the duration of the project, they developed three different patterns of use,


purposes for use, and functions of use.


The study confirms Smylie's (1995) seven factors


that work as facilitators or barriers to teacher participation and learning, and it suggests

that the most critical factor was related to the personal goals of the teacher.













CHAPTER


INTRODUCTION


L. J. Perelman's (1992) prediction that "the classroom and teacher have as much

place in tomorrow's learning enterprise as the horse and buggy have in modem


transportation" (p. 19) challenges traditional educational practice.


Technological


advances are transforming the world in general and schools in particular as virtually every


school in the United States now has microcomputers.


Suddenly telecommunications is


the link connecting education to the world, and, due in part to the role of technology as

both a teaching and a learning tool, education has ceased to be defined as the mere

transfer of information, a one-way passivity, but is seen instead as a more dynamic


transaction where both the teacher and the learner are changed.


Educational systems are


being restructured, changing the teacher's role in the teaching and learning process as a

result (Ely & Minor. 1992: Means, 1994: Molenda, 1992).


In January of 1994.


Vice-President Albert Gore took the first steps toward opening


the "superhighways" of information networks to the students of the United States when

he and one of the country's largest telephone companies, Bell Atlantic, agreed to provide


free access to schools.


Soon this vast network and technology will be a classroom


commonplace (Beckner & Barker, 1994).


Howard Rheingold (1993) writes.









curriculum decision-making. how to best implement this technology, remains a great


unknown.


Such rapid innovation makes irrelevant today what was done only yesterday


and presents us with pressing needs: "the necessity of properly preparing teachers as

decision makers, the importance of planning and fully implementing pilot projects, and

the need to keep up-to-date with the technology" (Hebenstreit et al. 1992. p. 67).

Increasingly, technology itself has come to be viewed as a catalyst for reform, the

"revolutionary force that instigates and supports reform by teachers and administrators at


the school level" (Glennan & Melmed, 1996, p. xiv).


In Kentucky, a state undergoing


comprehensive restructuring of the entire educational system, technology has been


integrated into every aspect of educational reform (Phillipo, 1991).


The 1990 Kentucky


Educational Reform Act (KERA) mandated that Kentucky schools be transformed, and

three assumptions served as the basis for broad-sweeping change statewide:

1. All children can learn and at relatively high levels.


Technology exists to support learning.


What children learn should be approximately the same across the state.


How,


by whom, and when, they learn changes to meet individual differences.

Policy makers operated under the assumption that "technology without [educational]

reform is of little value, and that widespread reform without technology is probably


impossible" (Glennan & Melmed, 1996, p. xx).


Nationwide, educational reform efforts


recognize that "technology is not only a catalyst and a tool for change, it is also an







3

required by law to implement technology and other innovations into their classrooms, but

staff development, training teachers and schools to integrate technology, remains a

problem.

In a typical scenario, computers are distributed (or not), explained (or not), and


expected to be used (or not). Traditional

"deskilled" (Apple, 1986; Frymier, 1987


Iv, teachers have increasingly become


Gitlin. 1983; Goodman. 1988; Shannon, 1987).


Deskilling has been most common in educational systems where teachers are handed

ready-made curriculum, materials, schedules, and so on, and are expected to function


efficiently.


This model has not worked with efforts to integrate technology:


"Simply


providing hardware to a school will not change the teacher's daily practice: even 'user


friendly'


computers are not easy to use for a newcomer .... Teacher training is the only


way to overcome these difficulties and is therefore an absolute prerequisite to the

introduction of information technology in schools" (Hebenstreit et al., 1992, pp. 26-27).

Research in teacher training and staff development demonstrates that "traditional"


modes are not effective (Guskey, 1986).


According to a recent study by the Critical


Technologies Institute, prepared for the United States Department of Education,


"Past


research strongly suggests that teachers must acquire new skills needed to operate

technology-rich environments" and "current professional development policies do not


encourage teachers to acquire such skills" (Glennan & Melmed, 1996, p. xviii).


Most


attempts to meet the needs of classroom teachers have failed, often because the efforts









Thomas Boysen, Kentucky's Commissioner of Education, defines a "self-renewing"


teacher as one who accepts the challenge to "relearn.


To do that, teachers must see


themselves as learners, charting their own professional growth in order to achieve the

desired goals and outcomes mandated by educational reform (Matthews, 1992).

Calderhead calls for professional development to be a "long-term aim referring to

communities of teachers working together, rather than a short-term aim for individual


teachers" (p. 145).

Teacher networking has become a critical feature of school reform: since traditional

staff development is inadequate especially where restructuring is happening-- new


models, studies of "exemplars of professional discourse communities"


(Grimmett &


Neufeld, 1994),


are needed.


The U


S. Department of Education, the Office of Science


and Technology Policy, and others have called for researchers to gather data and assess

"effective applications of technology to the training and professional development of


teachers


" (Glennan & Melmed. 1996.


p. xxii).


Telecommunications. a recent


technological innovation, provides a vehicle for teacher learning, creating the opportunity

for that "continuous, life-long process of professional development" that fosters good


teaching


(Calderhead, 1992. p. 146).


Statement of the Problem


This study explored the nature and impact of the participation of three Kentucky









educational reform and state law to integrate technology and writing into their teaching.

Private funding enabled them to form an electronic network, creating an opportunity for


professional dialogue with other teachers in the state.

How did they participate in the online discourse? Ho


What shape did their network take?


w did they interpret their


participation?


What, if anything, did they learn from the experience?


What factors


fostered or inhibited their learning?

At issue is the question of how teachers may "change their beliefs and

understandings as the result of conversational interactions, and how change interacts with

their goals, which may include (any or all): achieving some practical task (a private and

external goal), achieving agreement (a social and mutual goal), and achieving a better


understanding" (Draper, 1995, p. 223).


Also at issue are questions about professional


development and the suitability of telecommunication networking as an effective learning

environment for teachers.


Research Ouestions


The purpose of this study was to examine the teacher-only discussion and planning

area of one telecommunications network, analyzing the participation of three teachers

over a three-year period and comparing their interpretations of the experience to


determine the impact of telecommunications networking.


The research focused on the


following questions:









What is the nature of the individual participation of three teachers in the Kentucky

Telecommunications Writing Project?

What is the nature of their learning?

What factors fostered teacher learning and what factors constrained it?


Because qualitative research attends to participants


perspectives and understandings


(Bogdan & Biklen. 1982). and because this was an examination of one setting, this is a

case study utilizing ethnographic methods to explore "the nature of the lived experience"


(Van Manen.


990).


Case study research is "focused on discovery, insight, and


understanding from the perspectives of those being studied" and is qualitative and


"hypothesis-generating" (Merriam, 1988, p. 3), arising from "the desire to understand

complex social phenomena" (Yin, 1994, p. 3).


Significance of the Study


Telecommunications enables learning to occur collaboratively across both time and


distance (Davies. 1995: Hebenstreit et al., 1992).


It supports teachers as they move from


being providers of information to facilitators, reduces professional isolation, enhances

teacher development and productivity, promotes idea exchange among educators, and

contributes to innovations in curriculum design not possible in a traditional classroom


(Tinker & Kapisovsky, 1991).


In addition to considering recent developments in


technology and education, current trends in teacher education, and studies of teacher

kinds of shifts required by reform and technology-- can be informed from such a project's


story.


This study has the potential to offer one model of teachers working together


through telecommunications on common problems of instruction, designing staff

development over extended periods of time, and exemplifying the very standards schools

are setting for students.

To situate this three-year study of teacher discussion on a telecommunications

network, in the second chapter of this dissertation, I document three areas of research:

theories and practice in the teaching of writing, general trends in professional


development for teachers. and research about telecommunications networks.

CHAPTER


REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE


Teachers and students both participated in the Kentucky


Telecommunications


Writing Project.


It was a project designed to impact the teaching of writing.


Although


students were the most active participants, writing to each other for a variety of purposes,


their teachers wrote too.


This particular study is limited to the teachers-only discussion


area, the place where the teachers wrote and planned together.

What does an electronic discourse community created by a small group of


teachers look like?


How do the different members participate over the long-term?


what ways does a computer network foster teacher learning?


inhibit it?


What factors promote or


Because the technological innovations inherent in an electronic discourse


community are so recent, because it is uncommon to find longitudinal studies conducted

in teacher development, and because studies of teacher learning situated on a computer

network are rare, this study offers a substantive challenge to the fledgling researcher.

Although my study has not been done before I was able to examine the

intersection of literature from a variety of research areas to support and inform my


thinking.


This three-year study of teacher discussion on a telecommunications network is


framed then by theories from several domains.

general trends in professional development for teachers of writing, and research about

telecommunications networks for teacher learning, all interrelated. Clearly, my study has

the potential to extend current research, especially in the areas of professional

development and telecommunications technology.


Teaching Writing


According to James Britton (1972), we "learn to write above all by writing," and

the teaching of writing is grounded in theories of language and how language works


(Sapir. 1961; Vygotsky, 1978; Wells, 1986).

Various theories use various terms to


example, Kinneavy (1971) identifies four


types of discourse: reference, expressive, persuasive, and literary, and the National

Assessment of Educational Progress uses three: expressive (self-centered), expository

(world-centered), and persuasive (reader-centered).

Fulkerson (1994) defines four philosophies of composition: expressive, mimetic.


rhetorical, and formalist.


He classifies major theorists according to these headings and


explains the value of category: expressive emphasizes the writer, mimetic emphasizes


correspondence with "reality,


rhetorical emphasizes the effect on the reader, and


formalist emphasizes "traits internal to the work" (p. 4).

Berlin (1994) groups theories of writing into four camps and he traces the

historical roots of each: the Neo-Aristotelians or Classicists, the Positivists or Current-








writer, reality, reader, and language, but that they disagree in terms of which element to


emphasize.


He suggests that it is only in the classroom pedagogy that theory is revealed.


Hillocks


(1986) meta-analysis of research on written composition conducted


from 1963-1983 categorizes four approaches to the teaching of writing and summarizes


what works best.


In the presentational approach, the teacher presents information about


writing and assigns students tasks designed to illicit


"good writing;


" the primary method


of instruction in the individualized approach is one-to-one; and the natural process


approach uses very little formal instruction.


'"environmental"'


Hillocks terms the most effective approach


and defines the role of the teacher in this approach as being that of an


artful facilitator who utilizes a wide range of social-collaborative processes.

The Kentucky Telecommunications Writing Project was conceived as an open-

ended opportunity for teachers with little or no prior experience as writers, or as teachers


of writing, to work in collaboration with each other and with students.


By interacting in


written discourse, the participants considered ways to integrate writing throughout the


curriculum, a goal of the state reform.

but other than the "environmental" na


The teachers served as facilitators in the project,


ture inherent in the design of the project, they did


not prescribe to any one "best approach" to teach writing nor did they emphasize a

particular mode of writing.

Myers (1983) identifies three theoretical approaches to teaching writing in the

classroom (modeling, processing, and distancing), each with a different set of








the Kentucky


Telecommunications Writing Project, teachers generated a variety of


written models for each other to imitate (modeling), encouraged a discussion of ideas


(processing), and provided real audiences for each other (distancing).


These three


theories, distancing in particular, inform the questions of this study.

Modeling, the first theory, is closely related to behavioral theories and suggests


that writing is about producing text.


In this approach, writing is taught by duplicating


parts (Brown, 1915) in order to create a whole, and the writer "'imitates or approximates


the language present in the environment" (Myers, p.


Modeling can be seen as


prescriptive, a focus on drill and correctness, but it encompasses any attempt to teach

writing with an awareness of text and product: word choice, sentencing, form, and


arrangement.


Modeling theory as a framework for effective teaching of writing supports


research that asks questions about the text (Polanyi, 1958; Winterowd. 1970).

Theories of processing, the second approach, come from cognitive psychology


and focus on the mental process of the writer instead of on the text produced. In practice,

the emphasis here becomes one of meaning, problem solving, and brainstorming. Within


this research tradition are housed many current studies that look at the stages of the


writing process and the writer's discovery of meaning and content


(Emig, 1971; Graves,


1975: Rohman, 1965; Nystrand, 1977).

Distancing, the third theory, views writing not as a product or a process but as a

relationship between the writer and subject and between the writer and audience, shifting

rhetorical situation and the distance from speaker to audience determines the form the


writing takes as well as questions of style.


Writing is considered appropriate, even


"correct.


only in terms of the context and the social relationship


(Moffett, 1968).


Theories of distancing are found in James Britton


's taxonomy (1975) of


expressive. transactional. and poetic writing which states that all writing begins with


personal experience (expressive).


Britton and Moffett'


theories of writing development


echo Piaget


's theories of child development: "The cognitive perspective expands


gradually outward to accommodate audiences remote from self and to encompass

subjects broader and broader in time and space" (Moffett, 1983, p. 153).

Teachers and their students joined the Kentucky Telecommunications Writing


Project in an attempt to meet state mandates.


Writing online with no models to follow,


the teachers participated in a three-year project conceived as an authentic, problem-to-be-


solved.


Toward that end, writing was not taught explicitly according to discrete skills but


was viewed instead as a vehicle for thinking about a wide range of issues within a


community of others.


Teachers, students, and online guests formed this learning


community and all became writers and readers.


The community provided a social context


for their written discourse.


Like their students, the teachers in KTWP wrote daily.

made available, brought to hand so to speak, by being expressed"


(Britton. 1983. p.21).


Writing as a vehicle for cultivating the teacher's voice and for exploring personal

experience is one way to create professional dialogue (Modra. 1989; McDonough, 1994;


Yinger & Clark, 1981).


By writing online teachers use language to "view themselves"


for the purpose of behavioral change (Berlak & Berlak.


981).


Because it's often difficult


to view ourselves, the discussion needs must be a collaborative event that includes an "an


emotional as well as a rational dimension.


change, it entails emotions.


Because behavioral change is personal


Emotions attach to the ways we view ourselves, our actions,


and their results" (Osterman & Kottkamp, 1993, p. 34).


According to Bakhtin, meaning


exists only in the meeting of voices when teachers, as authors, both address and respond

to the voices of others-- in the turning outward, in listening to the voices around them and

in being moved to speak (Dyson. 1995).


The Russian psychologist. L.


Vygotsky (1978). identifies this relationship


between the role of language to make experience conscious and the social culture that


makes consciousness possible.


For Vygotsky,


"Human learning presupposes a specific


social nature and a process by which [people] grow into the intellectual life of those


around them.. .in collaboration with more capable peers


"(1978. p.88).


Teaching and


learning occur best within a sociocultural context (Mayher. 1990).








teaching lies in a willingness to attend and care for what happens in our students,


ourselves, and the space between us.


stance of listening


Good teaching is a certain kind of stance. .a


" (p. 244).


In the Kentucky


Telecommunications Writing Project, teachers taught writing


while participating in an electronic discourse community, writing and reading each


other's words.


Teachers became their own teachers, a different kind of professional


development model, similar in some ways to the National Writing Project (Gray, 1969).

The National Writing Project (NWP) invites teachers to form writing communities where


they write to learn, learn to write, and learn to teach writing.


According to Mary K.


Healy's


experience in the Bay Area Writing Project,


"From this sustained experience, we


relearned how to teach writing from the inside out-- testing the methods which our


colleagues demonstrated against our own immediate responses as writers" (p. 254).


Like


the NWP, KTWP represents a trend in the professional development of teachers, one that

differs from traditional in-service.


Teachers' Professional Development


Calderhead (1992) describes the need to improve our understanding of the


professional needs of teachers,


"If we are seriously to pursue the goal of reflective


teaching for a substantial number of teachers in schools, we need to place the issue of

teachers' own professional learning much higher up the agenda of teachers' in-service









leading to a growing consensus on the nature of what constitutes an appropriate


professional development system (Duff. Brown.


& Van Scoy, 1995).


Rather than continue the "deskilling" model, rather than mandate improvement

upon teachers by bureaucratic control, rather than believe that administrative praise,

expert mentoring, or nudging will "bring out the best in teachers" (Blase & Kirby, 1992;

Ceroni & Garman, 1994; Fletcher, 1991), current trends in professional development for

teachers view teachers as independent, self-directed human beings and recognize that

they have a history of experience that may be utilized as a learning resource; they have

social roles and developmental tasks that influence their readiness to learn; and they have

a strong need for immediate application of knowledge (Knowles, 1980).

The Kentucky Telecommunications Writing Project represents an independent,

self-directed network comprised of teachers with a wealth of life experience, engaged in


the challenge of integrating the technology into their work with students.


Research


studies of teacher learning are invariably situated in traditional learning environments, as

opposed to a cyberspace network, and conclude that adult students learn best under the

following conditions: a learning-centered classroom, personalized instruction, activities

related to experience, a friendly and informal climate, self-direction, and flexibility (Conti


& Fellenz, 1983).

Research in staff improvement at the Children's Center at the University of South

Carolina (Duff. Brown, & Van Scoy, 1995) concludes that teachers need a learning

"barriers and hurdles" inside as well as outside the workplace.


A holistic view that


encompasses personal growth as a part of professional growth, a broad spectrum of needs

including physical and mental health as well as environmental factors, recurs within the


body of research.


For example. Bell and Gilbert's (1994) three-year study of teachers in


New Zealand finds personal and social development intertwined with the professional.

The need for collaboration and participation is emphasized throughout the


literature.


Collaborative learning assumes that knowledge is socially, rather than


individually, constructed by communities of individuals, and that the collaborative

shaping and testing of ideas is a process through which individuals make meaning.

Success for teachers as learners seems to come when learning is situated in a climate that


fosters collaborative learning.


Learners must be willing to listen to and respect different


points of view, exercise responsibility for their own learning, and be committed to the

group (Imel, 1991).

Teachers who participated in the Kentucky Telecommunications Project formed

an electronic community in which they felt free to discuss whatever issues seemed note-


worthy.


They wrote for each other to read.


A telecommunications network may or may


not foster collaborative learning, but it is certainly unique in terms of a learning

He identifies seven


specific conditions that may promote teacher learning:


teacher collaboration

autonomy and choice

organizational goals and feedback mechanisms

integration of work and learning

accessibility of external sources of learning


Smylie's model describes some of the characteristics of the Kentucky

Telecommunications Writing Project and illuminates this study of teacher participation

and learning via an electronic discourse community.

As teachers examine their


practice, they learn about themselves and their work; they construct knowledge about








A growing body of research suggests that teachers learn best when engaged in


authentic learning tasks.


Teacher-initiated research, inquiry-based learning that is field-


based, and the opportunity to conduct self-studies are growing trends in professional


development.

diverse routes into the field as assets, begins with practitioners

need for building community, and creates contexts for knowledge generation.

According to Holland (1973), teachers have strong social needs and often feel


isolated from their colleagues and dissatisfied with their work.


Generally. teachers do not


work together to support and encourage each other professionally (Ashton & Webb,


1986).


Yet significantly, opportunities for collegial interaction have demonstrated a


positive effect on teacher attitudes and student performance (Little, 1982).

McLaughlin (1994), drawing on three years of field work, illustrates a different


way of thinking about teachers' professional development.


Teachers who report a high


sense of efficacy, who feel successful with today's students, shared only one

characteristic: membership in some kind of a strong professional community which they

initiatives and focusing school improvement efforts on increased student learning.


focus of most study groups appears to be on the local school context as an alternative to

traditional staff development (Charles, 1995; LaBonte, 1995; Sanacore, 1993).

Teacher networks appear to be one of the few realistic options for restructuring


education (Mann, 1989).


A comparative study of five professional teacher networks


situated in Montana. Alaska. Idaho, Oregon, and Washington, respectively, concludes


that networks have significant positive impact on curriculum renewal.

Current research argues that computer


offer one of the best sites for carrying out


such dialogues between peers (Fey, 1994; Hawisher & Moran, 1993).

Clearly, the move is to explore new models for training teachers, collaborative


models that empower teachers' own voices.


"In educational change and educational


research, the formerly unheard and undervalued teacher's voice has been accorded


increasing respect and authority in recent years" (Hargreaves, 1994, p. 60).


Studying


teachers raises questions about how teachers develop and voice professional knowledge.

"A growing narrative research tradition is demonstrating the impact of small, safe inquiry









1992, p. 159).


"Voice" is defined as "a necessary part of reflective teaching as it is an


instrument of self consciousness that allows teachers to examine their beliefs and


experiences. By talking. .. teachers raise to a level of consciousness the complex matters

of their work" (Richert, 1992, p. 190).


Teacher participation and teacher learning, as demonstrated in the narratives and

writing that the teachers post online, is broadly conceived (Sparks-Langer [1992]), but

may include such things as: wisdom of practice (Shulman. 1987), craft knowledge

(Leinhardt, 1990), art/aesthetics of teaching (Eisner, 1982; Kagan, 1988), teacher action

research (Cochran-Smith & Lytle, 1990), and narrative inquiry (Connelly & Clandinin,


1990).


This study is be "grounded in an image of persons as intelligent human beings,


capable of reflecting on themselves and their behavior and revising their behavior in the


light of reflection" (Berlak & Berlak. 1981, p. 256).

way of thinking and acting focused on learning and behavioral change; it is individuals


working to improve organizations through improving themselves.


It is a powerful


approach to professional development" (Osterman & Kottkamp, 1993, p.


), and it is not


easy (Mackinnon & Grunau, 1994).

This study of teacher learning explores a new model, a collaborative, professional


development model that uses telecommunications.


As an environment that may or may


not support teacher learning, telecommunications serves as a vehicle for teachers to form


a discourse community and offers a potential context for teacher learning.


This study is









Telecommunications Networks

collaborations to develop.


While the modes of conversation have remained the same, the


means by which these modes of conversation are carried out have not" (Kurshaw &


Harrinton. 1991, p. 5). Telecommunications and the Internet offer several forums for

professional development. Electronic journals, discussion groups, electronic courses,


electronic conferences, e-mail, networking, and coauthoring are some of the possibilities


(Monty & Warren-Wenk, 1994).


Research on these various services is proliferating but


does not appear systematic, nor does it seem to discriminate by form.


appears inconsistent.


Terminology also


In addition to considering theories of writing and the teaching of


writing, current trends in teacher education, studies of teacher learning over the long

term, and recent developments in technology and education, this research project will

extend what is now known about online learning communities.

Current literature in telecommunications research seems to range from glowing

testimonials to quasi-experimental studies to a few controlled experiments usually of the


technology.


Although the online discourse is archived in an electronic text and is easily


retrieved, the dynamics of the virtual community, the educational value of the

interactions, and the complexity of participation are not capable of being reduced to

controlled conditions: good qualitative studies are rare and the literature "is far from rich"








Telecommunications research is usually tied to a specific network but has not


examined teacher learning


For example, the QUILL project in Alaska was


designed as a three-year study intended to build on existing computer and writing

research and became instead a study of a particular software innovation (Bruce & Rubin,


1993).


More commonly, comparative studies focus on how electronic discourse differs


from face-to-face interactions.


For example, the


Intercultural Learning Network (ICLN),


a loosely organized set of participants, including elementary, middle, and high school

students and teachers, junior college, undergraduate, and graduate students and faculty

and a few participants from outside the educational system, explored the uses of

electronic message systems for instruction (Levin, Kim, & Riel, 1990).


Current research focuses largely on distance education networks.


A study of


computer conferencing at the British Open University (Kaye, 1995) demonstrated that

students and teachers can replicate electronically the dialogue that occurs in the

face-to-face class and that in some respects (e.g., increased levels of turn-taking by


students) electronic dialogue may be even richer.


Computer novices mastered the


technicalities of computer conferencing without having face-to-face training, learning


instead by direct experience.


This study concluded that "distance education systems


should place more emphasis on active and cooperative learning strategies which value the

personal experience and knowledge which all contribute" (p. 142).

Studies of electronic networks invariably talk about social dynamics and

"communicogram," a visual representation of the exchanges, revealed that although the

majority of responses were non-interactive, they indicated "the reflections of the learners"


(Henri. 1995. p. 159).


In other words, computer mediated conferencing is an individual


process in which the learner reaches personal objectives through support from members

of the group.

The quest for new kinds of communication patterns is common throughout the


research.


"Online discussions are characterized as having multiple threads to the


discussion and a non-linear pattern.


Users can create their own syntax and lexical symbol


system to convey and clarify affective expression" (Ruberg & Sherman, 1992).

community comprised of university students involved in a seminar on networking.

understanding of the applicability of ethnographic research and online education.

Summary


From this literature on teaching writing, teachers

telecommunications networks, the following themes emerge that are relevant to the

current study:

in authentic tasks that are self-directed.

Setting of the Study


Description of the setting.


The Kentucky Telecommunications Writing Project


(KTWP),


a three-year project, was designed to support a small group of Kentucky

classrooms.


KTWP was funded for $145.000 the first year and approximately the same


amount for two more years thereafter by a grant from the Bingham Trust, a private

foundation, in collaboration with Teachers & Writers Collaborative of New York City.

Application information was sent to every Kentucky school district, to the seven

National Writing Project sites in Kentucky, and to personnel at the state Department of


Education.


Any teacher of any discipline (grades 4-12) from any Kentucky school was


welcomed to apply


. The only prerequisites were a willingness to use writing in the


classroom, to involve students in curriculum decision-making,

and to participate for


Fifty-one teachers submitted written applications, which included personal


letters and letters of support from their administrations.


Based on geographic location of


the site, grade level of the class, and the level of commitment from the teacher as well as

from the school district, five sites (seven teachers) were selected by a committee to


participate for a three-year period.


Each teacher received compensation in the form of


materials and resources: project money enabled the teachers to purchase necessary

materials (i.e., books, computers, phone access), and a technical support person was

available to visit their schools.

The teachers chosen to participate in KTWP represented public, private, and


parochial schools,


4-12, various disciplines, urban and rural, large and small.


The sites


and teachers included:


fourth grade self-contained from Paducah in Western Kentucky;


Chapter One eighth grade reading from Covington in Northern Kentucky; high school









from rural Hi Hat in Eastern Kentucky.


These sites, a diverse mix of geography, districts,


schools, and classrooms, were representative of the state.

Via modems and phone lines, the pioneering teachers and students in the

Kentucky Telecommunications Writing Project used technology to communicate online


to meet the demands of educational reform.


Students and teachers from each of the five


sites designed writing activities based on their local communities and shared their work

online using telecommunications to connect with the other classrooms in the project.

KTWP aimed to develop curriculum and program in the following ways:

* to improve the writing and thinking skills of students;

* to center writing activities around students and their communities;

* to base classroom activities on established writing theory and practice;

* to involve students and teachers in the design and assessment of the curriculum;

* to use technology to enhance writing instruction in thoughtful, meaningful ways;

* to emphasize and celebrate diversity and differences; and

* to address the seventy-five valued outcomes mandated by the Kentucky

Educational Reform Act and subsumed under six learning goals:


basic communication and mathematics skills;

core concepts from disciplines;

self-sufficiency;

responsible group membership;









Students and teachers in the five classrooms formed online conferences, in


essence public forums for students and teachers to discuss a number of issues.


Writing


for each other, for audiences beyond their own classroom community, the students and

teachers from the five sites worked collaboratively, becoming a larger community of


winters.


Each site "logged on" receiving and sending notes daily.


The volume of writing


exchanged over the three years was massive; often a hundred notes would be posted

within a twenty-four hour period.


Different conferences were designed for different purposes.


Students from the


two high schools, for example, formed writing response groups, sharing and offering


suggestions for improvement.


Students from all sites initiated and moderated some of the


conferences; often the writing was informal, such as "Video games"


or "Pets.


Other


conferences, like "Communities,


were more structured, in this case as students engaged


in more formal writing and research about their communities.


Conferences like


"Poetry" or "Lit Groups"


were initiated by teachers and were highly structured.


Over the


three-year period, dozens and dozens of student conferences were established.


Student-


centered writing projects were the mainstay of KTWP and the entire project was designed

to improve the quality of student writing.

Teachers were free to participate in the student conferences, and often they did,

when, what, and how to write, and early in the project, they agreed to write online each

week but often did not do so.

Although the number of teachers participating from each site varied from year to

year, the seven teachers chosen initially from five sites did not know each other before

the project, but they did meet face-to-face several times throughout the grant period as

they attempted to involve students in classroom decision making, utilize


telecommunications, and find ways to integrate writing across the curriculum.

field notes (compiled from the online discourse) and also on participant interviews.


Teachers-only discussion.


To answer my first question, what is the nature of the


teachers-only discussion in the Kentucky Telecommunications Writing Project (see


Chapter 4), three years of online discourse-- the teachers'


notes written to "Journal"


were mapped and patterns sought. The field notes,

according to which teacher wrote it, when she wrote it, and what she wrote about.

In an attempt to determine the rules of their online community and to define the

culture, I selected one window of time halfway through the project and conducted an

intensive analysis of a three month period (December 1993 to April 1994) of "Journal,"


the teacher discussion area.


total of


I sifted through the online discourse during this period-- a


three hundred and ten notes (the average note was about 450 words) written by


the teachers.


Data analysis of this theoretical sampling of the discourse relied primarily


on Spradley's method (1980) of domain analysis and was facilitated by the use of

computer software, specifically The Ethnograph, which made it possible to reorganize


and manipulate text according to different codes.


Categories were examined, themes


generated, and a final taxonomy enabled me to describe the network metaphorically.

explicit tacit understandings, instead of studying their participation holistically,


explored each as a separate case, taking account of unique aspects of individual cases

of online discourse separating the notes of these individuals, rereading, summarizing, and

At the time I helped write the initial grant proposal for

Florida.


During the duration of the project I maintained an active role, observing the


project, collecting data. and supporting the efforts of the five participating Kentucky


schools.

CHAPTER 4
THE NATURE OF THE TEACHERS-ONLY DISCUSSION


To answer my first question, what is the nature of the teachers-only discussion in

the Kentucky Telecommunications Writing Project, three years of online discourse were


mapped and patterns sought.


The 1,236 prose notes posted by the teachers of the


Kentucky Telecommunications Writing Project to "Journal," their private discussion area,

during the three-year period each averaged about a page in length. Although I read all of


the notes at the time they were written and read them all again when I transferred them to

print copy and bound them in large, three-ring binders, for the purpose of this study I


initiated formal data analysis by carefully rereading the entire discourse.


noting observations in three ways.


I read slowly,


First, using the analysis technique of putting


information in chronological order (Yin, 1994), I listed each note according to authorship

and general contents: mapping the number of the note, the date it was written, who wrote


it, and what it was about.


the teachers'


This process reduced more than a thousand pages of dense text,


notes, to an easily examined timeline constructed on about one hundred,


three by five, index cards.

These descriptive interpretations (Merriam, 1988) served to explain the


nature of the teachers-only discussion in the Kentucky Telecommunications Writing

Project based on features and patterns of each teacher's participation by year as well as

over the three-year period.

Finally, I chose one. four-month window of time halfway through the three-year

period (December 1993 to April 1994) of "Journal," the teacher discussion area. in which

sifted


through the online discourse during this period-- a total of three hundred and ten notes

(the average note was about 450 words) written bv the teachers. Sorting domains was


facilitated by the use of computer software. The Ethnograph. which made it possible to


reorganize and manipulate text according to different codes.


Categories were examined,

were duplicates, and some were lost during the filing process.

Teachers from each of the five sites participated each year, though some of the

teachers, like Nancy. entered the project late, and others, like Delores and Debbie. relied


primarily on their colleagues to do the writing.


In addition to the teachers at the five


sites, participants included a poet in residence with the project, project directors, myself,

and other educators interested in KTWP.

The First Year


The online conference began officially in September 1992. and although

telecommunications was new to the participants, no one received directions about how to


write or what to write.


None of the teachers had ever been online before, and they had no


prior sense of what writing online might look like.


The teachers defined their culture, and


they chose to write their notes in the form of friendly letters. following a fairly standard


form.


For example, the notes on -Journal"


usually opened with some type of greeting.


Unlike old-fashioned one-to-one letter writing.


"Journal" notes were conferenceed"


the audience was more public.


Often the greeting was overarching:


"To all. Hey


everybody. To: KTWP Journal colleagues, Hellooo everybody, Dear fellow KTWP'ers,

Dear Everyone. To: KTWP folks. Dear KTWP Teachers, Dear Friends, and Greetings to


All!"


Other times, notes were addressed to particular individuals, even though all


participants read them: often they just began:


"Yes. .. Just a quick note, Hello, Good


morning! Hev out there!


Brrrrrr!


I had a brainstorm just a minute ago.


It sounds like...


know that you have to be in a state of worry and anxiety."


Notes usually had some type of closing followed by a signature.

generally affirmations, words intended to leave the readers feeling good:


Closings were

"Take care, all.


Merry Christmas!


Have a good week!


Happy New Year. friends.


Keep up the good


work.


You deserve it.


Pleasant dreams everyone. Fondly.


Love.


Love & aspirin.


Love










there!


Thanks.


Let me know what I need to do.


If I can help along the way. I'll be


there."


Although the form of the notes was fairly standard. participants wrote their notes


to suit themselves and their moods.


The pages and pages of print-outs revealed patterns


in the writing, patterns of idiosyncratic behaviors, patterns that show the uniqueness of


each writer.


The first note sent was from Bud, the high school social studies teacher


from Hi Hat. who also helped direct the project, perhaps establishing the style as well as


setting the mood.


He wrote often and with a balanced tone. sometimes serious,


sometimes very playful: "I feel like a butterball." In his notes, he mixed the personal with

the professional, serving to nudge everyone else to participate more fully: "I really would


like to hear your suggestions about the 'pods'


you are using. Kathy.


Would they help us


on KTWP?"


His notes were usually long and informative, and he addressed the other


KTWP teachers by name, responding to their efforts with a cheerleader's enthusiasm:


"Just wanted to add my Rah! Rah's! to our time in Louisville.


I was really proud of you.


Like a general, he planned and made requests: "All of you need to be thinking about how


we want to structure our time."


He also reported on the "movements of the troops,"


keeping the others up-to-date on the action: "How are your kids coming with their project


ideas?


Jane mentioned that St. Peters and Paul were about to decide to do a teen


pamphlet."

" In


her notes she was sometimes authoritative, pushing the teachers to have more theoretical


conversations:


"I'd like to hear more as you begin to move further into using Atwell's


theories.


" Toward that end, she seemed to model the behavior she sought:


"The reform is


based on the belief that teachers need to be the decision makers, but how is that


possible?"


She encouraged the teachers and was full of praise for their efforts: "You can


be proud of what you have accomplished.


" In a friendly manner, she offered tidbits of


detail from her regular life: "Mv car is still buried in a blanket of snow." As the stress of

her job mounted: 'I am exhausted so this will have to be a quick note." her tone became


more curt with less humor and more directives: "I have been waiting for these kinds of


questions to emerge.


" She wrote long notes articulating her vision for the network:


would like for us to remain a demonstration network," interspersed with short notes about


the load of work she was under: "an all-day and evening work session.


" After May, her


participation faded and finally halted altogether mid-way through the second year when

she became director of the Region 8 Service Center in Eastern Kentucky.

Participation during the early part of the year was tentative as


teachers mastered the technology and began to develop their voices.


Everyone


experienced technical difficulty during the early stages of participation: "I've been


tempted to hurl my laptop out the window,


discuss: "Sometimes it can be rather frustrate


and problems were a popular topic to

ine." But the teachers seemed to share the


challenge and the dominant mood was optimistic: "We are all working out technology


glitches.


Everything will improve in good time.


" "I will be much better at this next year


because of the frustration and thinking that went into this year."


Slowly, they became


more confident:


"I'm really getting the hang of this telecommunication stuff."


"I am


slowly becoming an expert.


"The computer has become not only a learning tool but a


writing tool as well." "We are all finally computer literate!"

On the whole, the teachers began their telecommunications project with a certain


degree of reservation: "Enclosed you will find a list of my students." Notes were fairly

formal, sent almost like progress reports: "We are starting an "Issues' conference per your


request.

The Second Year


Over the summer and into the start of the second school year. online activity

decreased as teachers reported mainly on travels with family and planned for the new


year.


Emmy was the most active of the teachers, writing frantically in early August:


"What do I do?


I'm a fourth grade teacher!"


The other teachers responded with notes of


support, advice, and plans: "You've got lots of friends out here to lean on!"


An intense


series of notes about Emmy's dilemma-- after six years teaching fifth grade she suddenly

found herself, with little warning, assigned to teach fourth grade, the high-stakes

accountability grade-- kicked off the second and most prolific year.


At the mid-point of the three-year period, participation peaked.

"Journal."


At no other time were


so many notes exchanged, and at no other time were notes as developed.

Domain analysis (Spradley. 1980) of these notes reveals patterns in the discourse,


topics and features of the discussion.


Although these patterns can be seen throughout the


three-year period, close analysis of the mid-way point uncovered a relationship between


the pressures of statewide mandates and the teachers


efforts to be autonomous, their need


to feel secure about themselves and their work in the midst of massive reform. and their

desire to define themselves as professional educators.

Discussions about KERA, implications for change, and the status of changes at


the local level of each site were on-going;

"I know I wouldn't have ever made it back to school after Christmas if you hadn't


given me support."

Carol's efforts to keep the teachers informed about reform and to answer their


questions were not enough.


The KTWP teachers continued to write about feelings of


helplessness in the face of state mandates and as a result of characteristics of their


professional and personal lives that were non-negotiable.


As teachers mired in the


language of KERA, grappling with the stressful changes, struggling to make the "big

"I've swung from wanting to quit yesterday and

The Kentucky teachers in the project struggled with mandatory limitations, but by

the second year they had developed strategies for helping each other balance the stresses


of such constraints.


Words of support appeared as a recurring pattern, and mutually, the


teachers chose to create a community based on positive language: "Emmy and Carol, the

Questions about the power structure of KTWP were also raised fairly often,


but the critical tone that appeared elsewhere in other notes was adjusted when the


criticism was closer to home:


"I feel somewhat uncomfortable with this group having a


captain when we are engaged in learning shared leadership."

Actually, the Kentucky Telecommunications Writing Program was itself a

mandate considering the three-year commitment the teachers made to the project and the


evolutionary nature of the design.


A large portion of online activity was devoted to the


inner-working of the project, some of which was mandatory, most of which was organic.

Online planning involved all the teachers and covered all aspects of the project, ranging

from the logistics of making travel plans for face-to-face meetings: arrangements about

scheduling, planning, traveling to meetings, ride sharing, bringing students, reserving

rooms, and finding equipment, to the more subtle negotiating of power and group

decision-making.

By the second year of the project, even deciding where to meet. taking turns for

who travels where, and reaching consensus about such decisions had become an integral


nart of the discourse:

The wires were heavily used for online planning:


"I think we need to do some


planning before the 22nd so that we don't all come together with no idea of what to do";


delegating tasks:


"We haven't heard from you all vet about your slides for the


presentation"; asking questions: "How many packets do you think we should prepare?";

making requests: "Let me know what I need to do": putting theory into practice:

"Perhaps, since this project is to be ours. we are the ones that are to be guiding, molding,

and forming this project as we go we all need to take more ownership": volunteering: "I

would be willing to facilitate the next large-group meeting if no one else has offered";


and humoring each other in their efforts: "Have a safe trip!

s known for people falling


asleep and falling off the side!"

Clearly, the teachers in KTWP recognized in themselves the freedom to define


themselves, at least within the limits of their mandates, and the process was not an


one.


"I don't have the answers," one of them wrote, but it was understood that


collectively they did.


Describing themselves for each other to read, reflecting on their


own processes, the teachers in the study found plenty of opportunities to reflect, to


recreate themselves for themselves.

"Sue, the


responses to your team-building questions have been wonderful, enlightening."

From team-building activities that shared something thev knew about their own


team-working skills to writing about their


"hot buttons" and other personality traits.


during the second year of the project, the teachers learned to open-up. to become


reflective readers and writers and thinkers:


"A serious dialogue is difficult for me at


times."


"Some of my best thoughts come in rattles."


"Most of the time I wander around


here talking to myself and only partially verbalize thoughts."

Language skills, reciprocity, tolerance, trust, and willingness to participate, are

old fashioned values/skills necessary for successful community building anywhere,


whether in a classroom or lodged in cyberspace.


The network provided the opportunity


for teachers to collaborate, to share power and authority, to recognize each others's

expertise, to meet personal challenges, to participate in decision-making, to integrate their


work with their learning, and to have access to colleagues and resources.


The opportunity


existed but what the teachers made of it was determined them.

With determination and commitment, promises were made and promises were


kept, and another social skill appeared patterned throughout the notes:

Apologies were also made regarding the quality of the writing's content:


"I hope


it isn't seen as rambling." They apologized for digressing, disagreeing, upsetting, and

talking behind someone's back. All apologies in this category represent a fear that they

offended their readers. It seemed important to maintain that sense of community support


and to avoid a critical tone:


"If I gave that impression I am very sorry."

sooner, and glitches that were a part of their telecommunications.


Sometimes the sender


used a faulty command, sent a repeat upload, or had difficulty using the online editor. /

of these problems were inherent in their process of continuing to master the technology.

Sometimes errors just happened, like the morning Emmy accidentally sent a piece of


student writing to "Journal":


"Ooops!


Sorry about that.


So much for putting on


pantyhose and trying to send notes so early in the morning!"


And often lines would be

sender's control.

By far, the largest category isolated in data analysis was all about supporting each


other.


Reciprocity, positive feedback, encouragement, validation, and affirmation.


Sharing sympathy was an unspoken commitment.


This domain was so full. that simple

Many notes used the word "thanks."


Teachers wrote: "Thanks for response, for


help. for thinking, for questioning, for notes, for advice, for good wishes, for listening, for

the photos, for the words of encouragement, for the information, for insight, for time, for

mail. for the reminder, for recruiting, for hospitality, for sensitivity, for the message."

Requests for help were usually answered: "If I don't write about everything I


promised please remind me every once in a while."


Instances of helping behavior--


giving phone numbers: sharing information-- how to open a conference or save in ASCII:

answering questions: finding information; volunteering to respond, moderate, or

contribute energy to one task or another were woven throughout all notes.

Reflection about projects was a regular topic: "I still have serious misgivings

about the haste with which this project (a video project) was launched, the vagueness of

the audience and purpose, the time it will take from an already stretched curriculum to do

and ultimately the older students, too. is to figure out how to find compromises and

solutions to the problem that satisfies everybody's needs."

The kinds of work these teachers did, the work that was necessary for their

professional lives, also included sharing ideas and asking questions of each other


professionally.

Whatever the constraints, and it seemed to be somewhat different for each of

them, some things they shared in common, like motivating learners, making learning


meaningful:


"How can we get students talking more to each more, weighing what has


been said, learning how to read and respond to one another rather than passing each other


in the electronic sky and meeting only occasionally


"How can we help students


become more thoughtful about their own writing?" "How can you help others through

Talking about personal stress was one of the most frequent topics the second year


of the project. The teachers wrote about their lives, telling stories of home. of school, of

their communities. Their voices speak for themselves as blocks of text makes patterns:


"Over the week-end a seventeen-year-old brother of a student was shot and is in serious

insinuates:


"I just thought it was interesting that although the vehicular highways were


down, the information highway continues to roll."

When the blizzard outside resulted in a blizzard of online notes, as teachers had

time to write and read and think, humor became another strategy for dealing with cabin

fever and dangerous weather: "If we don't get back to school, we are all going to die of


eyestrain."


Humor and good-natured bantering was often the response to personal stress,


as when Bud. the coordinator of the project, had a car wreck (that turned out ok) during a


particularly bad blizzard:


"Did you sort of get what you deserved-- running around like a


bad teenager when God and the governor were telling you to stay wrapped up in your

lovely blanket?"


The Third Year


The third and final year of the Kentucky Telecommunications Writing Project


began with some obvious changes, mostly changes in focus and in leadership.


During the


summer, KTWP teachers attended a writing workshop in Louisville and began drafting

their thoughts about using telecommunications in their classrooms for possible


publication.


Teachers


Writers Collaborative of New York City invited the KTWP


teachers to submit chapters for a book, tentatively entitled Telecommunications Is Not

All the project participants had pledged to act as a model for other teachers and


other schools, sharing what they learned.

I'm all for that!


However,

The discussion was


complex and they questioned their reasons for seeking a broader professional community:

Or looking outside our world


"You don't have to prove that technology is the


greatest thing since white bread, but what you can share with teachers is how it can and

should be used--not just for student growth but for teacher development as well."

From the outset, the teachers had held on to the idea that the project was all about


technology.


Certainly, problems with getting online, busy phone lines, running out of


online connect time, down computers, line noise, uploading, classroom management and

scheduling, sending laptops home with students, implementing school technology plans,

and learning other networks' systems (KETNET, Internet. KIDlink, Breadnet. local BBS,

During the third year of the project, the nature of much of the teacher talk

centered on the professional development of the participants, and the primary focus of the


network became curriculum.


Under Robin's leadership, online time was devoted to

like); and curriculum ("We are up to our ears in novels").


The year ended, as it began,


with a writing workshop and the opportunity to revise and refine chapters for the book.

Several teachers were unable to attend.


Summary


At the beginning of the project, few of the teachers had any prior experience with

computers and none of them had ever participated in a telecommunications network.

Most did not consider themselves to be writers, and all were grappling with massive


curriculum innovation mandated by statewide education reform.


The special funding


provided by the Kentucky Telecommunications Writing Project enabled them to try


something new, on their own terms without models or prescriptive expectations.


teachers were invited to participate over a three-year period with few requirements or

barriers.

At this stage, their focus became more content specific: reform. curriculum,

Simultaneously, time was given to examining and understanding

supportive.


The individuals were conscious of their relationship to the group and efforts


were universally geared toward group successes.


In the electronic network they created,


members were part of a community whose main function was warmth and support,


encouragement, and listening.


By the third and final year, they had begun to share their


work with others, writing and talking in a larger professional community.














CHAPTER


THE NATURE OF INDIVIDUAL PARTICIPATION


Although all participants were considered in the analysis of the teachers-only

discussion, the focus now narrows in an attempt to determine the nature of the individual


participation of three teachers in the Kentucky


Telecommunications Writing Project.


this chapter, analysis focuses specifically on interpreting the participation of three

individual teachers (Emmy, Bev, and Sue) at three sites (Paducah, Covington, and

Louisville), examined as subunits within the case.

In an attempt to unearth and make explicit tacit understandings, instead of

studying the participation of individual teachers holistically, I explored each as a separate

case, taking account of unique aspects of individual cases (Merriam, 1988) and analyzing


the embedded units (Yin, 1994).


I resorted the three years of online discourse separating


the notes of these individuals, rereading, summarizing, and categorizing each teacher's


words.


Descriptive interpretations were constructed explaining features and patterns of


each teacher's participation.

These sites (see chart) were selected because they represent the only project sites


with just one teacher, rather than teams of teachers, participating as an individual.


Of the


five sites initially chosen to participate in KTWP. two involved teams of teachers










fluctuated


as newcomers joined the network. These three teachers participated


consistently over the three-year period, making it easier to compare their online

experiences.

Emmy, the teacher from McNabb Elementary in Paducah,


was a graduate of Murray State University with a bachelor's degree in elementary


education.


The summer before the project started, Emmy had attended the Purchase Area

process theory.


It was at the Writing Project that Emmy picked up an application for

Bev, from Holmes Junior High School in Covington, graduated from


Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago in 1969, took time off to raise a family,

received her Master's from Northern Kentucky University during the first year of this

project, and then continued to work on Rank I certification and a Reading Specialist


endorsement.


At the start of the project she had taught for three years: first and second


grades in Chicago and eighth grade in Covington.


Although Bev had no prior experience


with modems, her classroom was already set-up as a computer lab.


She had


experimented with a reading and writing workshop model based on the work of Nancie


Atwell.

wrote regularly throughout the duration of the project.


All three participated willingly

network for solace and support: "This is a note that I can't translate the doom and despair.

Bev

Over the three-year period. Bev sent a total of 86 notes, less than half the number


sent by Emmy and less than a fourth of the number sent by Sue.


And yet, unlike other


teachers on the network, Bev's participation never wavered, as she sent approximately the


same number of notes each year, almost like clockwork.


Also unlike the other teachers,


Bev talked primarily from a professional rather than a personal stance.


Although she sent


the fewest notes, her notes were lengthy, developed and detailed, written report-like, and

filled with unique features: a personal warmth, a keen sense of her audience, and a


dedication to professionalism.


Regularly, Bev sat before her computer at home, writing


consistently, considering the student perspective, and telling lots of classroom and student


stories.


She took her work in the classroom as well as online seriously, and she asked


hard questions and raised important issues.

The first year. Bev was enthusiastic about the project from the beginning, and


quickly involved her students.


In her first note posted to "Journal" ("Hello from


Covington!"). Bev used the pronoun


and signed it "Holmes Jr. High.


" From the








88

note was very short (233 characters), written all in capital letters, and ended with a faulty

send command, she showed immediate sensitivity, audience awareness, and civility: "We


are having fun reading everyone's messages.


" Also, instantaneously from the beginning,


Bev and her students assumed project responsibilities and made promises to participate:

"We will try to open a conference soon.

Active participants from her beginning, Bev and her students shared enthusiasm


for the project.


The second note posted from Covington was not sent from Bev, but from


her student, Tyana.


"'the newsletter editor here at Holmes Jr. High School."


In it. Bev's


students responded to the Saint Peters and Paul newsletter request, discussed deadlines

("the deadline is OK"), and assumed immediate ownership and responsibility. ("I would


like to hear from Bunny, Jonathan, and the others that were in our group. .


will have


everything done by Friday.


Early in the project, teachers in KTWP attended the annual conference of the

National Council of Teachers of English held in Louisville that year. and they had the


chance to meet face-to-face after writing to each other online.


Such opportunity seeded a


professional collegiality which brought Emmy and Bev into the forefront of teacher talk


on "Journal.''


In her third note, Bev.


"enthused about my trip to Louisville,

Emmy's enthusiasm.

Bev's notes, of all the teachers, were richest with descriptions of her class and her

ying real


In Bev's reports, the traditional roles of students and teacher merged and blended.

She admitted she learned from them as she leaned on their expertise: "Whenever I can't

figure out all this technology stuff. I turn to the students for help and they usually can tell


me what I am doing wrong.


" Under her mentoring, her students tackled several


community service projects and literacy projects.


She transformed her classroom into a










teacher


putting the responsibility and ownership on student shoulders.


At the same


time she continued to monitor their learning ("Students still have trouble with peer

editing and coming up with ideas for writing").


Like Emmy. Bev used "Journal" to talk about her problems and concerns,

although Bev limited her talk to professional issues. In terms of technology, specifically


software incompatibility, she wrote in response to another teacher,


"You are not the only


frustrated person in Kentucky.


" Like all teachers. she said,


"My biggest problem is to


find the time to do all that I want to and need to do.

i feeling isolated and overwhelmed,


she wrote, "I believe I am the only teacher in KTWP who sees her students for 55

minutes a day. Trying to do reading workshop, writing workshop, reading aloud a novel,


dialogue journals, conferences, mini-lessons, KTWP. book projects, research projects,


and community service projects.


We run out of time."


Bev approached all her problems with an optimistic sense of challenge, seeking


solutions instead of sympathy.


When buried by the reading and by her efforts to integrate,


she wrote about how she involved kids ("I have one student who comes in early everyday

to capture notes and I want to involve more kids"), and she used the network to think


about strategies for handling massive notes-- asking her colleagues,


"How do all of you


manage to keep up with the volume of notes that are written?"


Later she wrote,


"I just
