This compact, clear and user-friendly text provides everything a pre-service or in-service teacher needs to know to follow the research cycle and conduct an action research project. This text emphasizes reflective processes used in planning and conducting action research studies, data analysis techniques (quantitative and qualitative), and displaying and explaining results. It provides specific information needed to complete each step of the action research cycle with chapter activities that help the student/reader conduct projects focused on school improvement. Each activity includes a research paper component that helps students create a research paper as they complete the activities in each chapter. This text has more emphasis on reflective and reflexive activities than other text and is geared toward adults/professionals who will use these activites to conduct action research for educational change and school improvement.
