Have you seen Research, Real Research by Jessica Hadid ? Seems like you have a lot in common.  I also tagged you both in a post from LEE BOYES who has a cool but ambitious idea. To get Lee's idea off the ground, she would need some clear ways to measure the impact of any prototypes, to persuade administration. This would also meet your goal of involving teachers in producing their research... wouldn't it be cool if her idea was prototyped, implemented, and then we worked to get it published?
