Summary

Action Research: A Guide for the Teacher Researcher, Third Edition Geoffrey E. Mills This text provides a step-by-step, how-to approach of ''doing'' action research--backed by the most extensive theory and research coverage on the market today. The author guides future and current educators through the action research process with numerous concrete illustrations and a wealth of on-line resources, positioning action research as a fundamental component of teaching alongside curriculum development, assessment, and classroom management. Key changes in the new edition of this market-leading text are: More Balanced Coverage of Quantitative and Qualitative Data Collection Techniques NEW! Increased coverage of the most frequently used quantitative data collection techniques in action research, including teacher-made tests, standardized tests, and report cards, is included in Chapter 3, ''Data Collection Techniques.'' More Balanced Coverage of How to Analyze Both Quantitative and Qualitative Data Chapter 6, ''Data Analysis and Interpretation,'' and Appendix B, ''Descriptive Statistics and Action Research,'' guide students through the data analysis process and provide techniques, coding guidelines, and examples for analyzing both quantitative and qualitative data. NEW! An expanded discussion of descriptive statistics in Appendix B includes step-by-step guidance on how to calculate standard deviation by hand with the help of a calculator rather than using SPSS. Rearranged Order of Chapters Pertaining to Writing and Sharing of Action Research NEW! ''Writing Up Action Research'' (Chapter 8) precedes, ''Sharing, Critiquing, and Celebrating Action Research'' (Chapter 9) to present a more logical and clearer path to understanding. Separate Chapter Completely Devoted to Ethics NEW! Chapter 5 provides an expanded discussion of ethical issues, principles, and guidelines.
