Summary

As an educator, you are committed to helping every single student prosper. The Action Research Guidebook gives you a tool-action research-to uncover the critical knowledge and insights you need to improve your teaching practice and come ever closer to the goal of universal student success.

Blending qualitative and quantitative research methods, action research is a practical tool for improvement where your school or classroom is the laboratory. Choosing the area that holds greatest promise for improvement, you will study your own professional action and make changes within your sphere of influence. Author Richard Sagor, an expert in action research, provides tables, charts, forms, and worksheets to demystify and simplify the process.

Each chapter provides concrete strategies for immediate use. Realizing the needs of the busy educator, Sagor has written this guide so that you can get started on your own action research project after reading just a few chapters. Each chapter prepares you to take the next step:

  • Finding and refining your focus
  • Articulating and drawing a theory in action
  • Determining the research questions
  • Building and analyzing a data-collection plan
  • Turning findings into action plans
  • Reporting and sharing action research

This book provides the guidance needed by individual teachers and teacher teams, preservice teachers in teacher education courses, principals, counselors, and other educators as they work toward their goal of school improvement.
