Summary

''Conducting action research in the classroom is a significant way for teachers to assess their own teaching with regard to student learning. Designed for teachers, especially reading teachers, Action Research for Teachers: Traveling the Yellow Brick Road uses the analogy of action research as a journey for self-discovery in evaluating how effective they are as classroom teachers. The text provides a clear and thorough set of exercises and directives for determining a research plan, organizing the research, developing evaluation tools, collecting, displayng and evaluating data.''--BOOK JACKET.
