Miriam B. Raider-Roth received her Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) from the Harvard University Graduate School of Education in 2000. Her research focuses on the relational context of teaching and learning; children's and teachers' conceptions of their relationships in school; authentic assessment; use of descriptive process in teacher professional development; and feminist qualitative research methods. She is the author of Trusting What You Know: The High Stakes of Classroom Relationships and co-editor of The Plough Woman: Records of the Pioneer Women of Palestine, A Critical Edition. Her work has been supported and recognized by awards from the American Association of University Women, Phi Delta Kappa, Harvard University, SUNY at Albany, and the New England Educational Research Organization. She is currently studying the ways that teachers' engagement with texts, colleagues, and students shape their sense of self as learners and teachers.
