Research

Projects

Project name: Teachers’ Work and Working Teachers: Working in Times of Uncertainty
Funded by: The National Research Foundation (NRF)
Principal Investigator: Nyna Amin (UKZN)
Co-investigators: Michael Samuel; Ansurie Pillay; Miranda Swart; Angela James; Doras Sibanda; Mari van Wyk (UKZN) + 8 postgraduate students

This project is an exploration of multiple facets of teachers’ work in South Africa. Teachers’ work is a complex notion that veers from formal, official prescriptions of what has to be done in terms of enactments of roles and functions to unanticipated contingencies that shape teachers’ work so that it differs from school to school. Seven researchers and 10 students (PhD and MEd) form the core research team. The aim of the project is threefold: to identify what work teachers do, under what conditions and its nature; to map out a provincial profile of teachers’ work in KwaZulu-Natal; and to implement the findings for teacher preparation. Multiple methodologies, both qualitative and quantitative will be deployed, with a variety of methods (interviews, focus group interviews, artefacts, transect walks, work diaries and observations) that will elicit data to capture the depth and breadth of teachers’ work. The project will unfold in three phases: ethnographic case studies, followed by a survey of KwaZulu-Natal teachers and finally, implementing the findings of the first two phases to inform the education of teachers-to-be. The significance of the project is the production of knowledge of an area that is not well researched in South Africa, the potential to improve the quality of teacher education, and ultimately, it will offer complex theorisations and conceptualisations of teachers’ work in authentic spaces. Furthermore, the project is important because it will provide mentorship for younger and aspiring researchers, opportunities to acquire advanced research skills, and to work collaboratively and experience knowledge production processes.

Project name: Learning to Read, Reading to Learn, Learning to Write: Literacy Development for Secondary Schooling
Funded by: The National Research Foundation (NRF)
Principal Investigator: Emmanuel Mgqwashu (Rhodes University)
Co-investigator: Ansurie Pillay (UKZN)
Drawing from the Hallidayan, Bernsteinian and Vygotskyan theories of Systemic

Functional Linguistics, Pedagogic Discourse and Social Learning, this study examines the role that Rose’s (2005) Learning to Read, Reading to Learn Methodology could play in the development of literacy in 2 secondary schools: 1 in a Black Township and the other in a rural area in Grahamstown, Eastern Cape Province. Located with the Critical Paradigm, Subjective Epistemology and Mixed-Method approach, the study uses documentary evidence, semi-structured interviews and Learning to Read, Reading to Learn Methodology as research instruments. The latter is used as a pedagogic intervention in 1 Grade 10 classroom in each secondary school. Learners that will be part of the study at the beginning will remain study participants for 3 years until they reach Grade 12 in their schooling. The study hopes to contribute to debates concerning undoing classroom practices that favour the elite and marginalise the majority.
