Overview

Learning to inquire together, to generate knowledge and action simultaneously—that's action research. This book provides practical guidance for conducting schoolwide action research to improve student learning. Begin with a broad assessment of the health of the school or with the perception of a problem in one area, such as students' achievement in mathematics. As staff members—or parents or community members—what do you do? Calhoun presents the simple process of collective study in action. First, seek agreement with others in your school community on what to study. Second, collect and share information about students' knowledge, skills, and attitudes. Third, search your own experiences and examine educational research for strategies and programs that will improve your students' math understanding. Fourth, work together to improve curriculum and instruction in math. Fifth, collect data on results, study effects, and begin the cycle all over again.
