Editorial Reviews

Doctor - Susan Gebhard
"The conversational tone of this book takes a “scary” research course and makes it accessible—even enjoyable for educators! "
Doctor - Gineida Morales-Guasch
"Excellent book. Well explained, easy to read and to understand. "

"The conversational tone of this book takes a “scary” research course and makes it accessible—even enjoyable for educators!"
Shelley H. Xu
"This readable, practical, yet rigorous guide to action research is a must read for all who are interested in classroom- and school-based research. This book contains all one needs to know about conducting an action research, from identifying a research topic to analyzing data to writing up an action plan for changing existing practice."
Jill C. Miels
"An outstanding resource to educators everywhere. This is a book that will strengthen educational practice for teachers, administrators, university faculty, and anyone with a vested interested in student learning. The book provides the foundation knowledge about research design in general (which I think is a vital piece) but takes the reader right to the specifics of action research. This is a great professional resource for teachers. I would welcome the opportunity to use it with students."
