Abstract: Research Practice Partnerships (RPPs) have emerged as a means of pursuing research that is of immediate consequence for K-12 U.S. education. While theorists have acknowledged the need to develop relationships between practitioners and researchers in RPP settings, questions remain about the ways that relational work can facilitate equity and support practitioner agency and engagement. In this paper, we look to feminist and sociocultural perspectives to examine two RPPs in the mountain west United States and the ways that practitioners and students expressed relational work as central to their engagement in the projects. We found that participants who engaged deeply over long periods of time with these RPPs felt mutual trust and personal connections with researchers, colleagues, and peers that led to their continued and deepened engagement.
