This study aims to investigate Grade R teachers’ evolving ways of being, making meaning and changing identity through participation in a newly established community of practice (CoP). The proposed participants in this study will be a group of 10 to 15 Grade R teachers from local schools, some who hail from schools who participated in the SA Numeracy Chair Project (SANCP) phase 1 (2011-2015) project and who have elected to participate in the SANCP phase 2 Grade R Early Number Fun (ENF) Program (2016- Nov 2017). My study will be a qualitative interpretive study.
The main aim of this research study is to investigate Grade R teachers’
through participation in a newly established community of practice (Wenger, 1998).
