Overview

Convert frustrations into solvable problems through action research!

Action research provides a process for educators to individually and collectively study their own situations, try new practices, evaluate those innovations, adjust, and try again.

In this revised second edition, Richard Schmuck demonstrates how educators at all levels can use action research to improve their professional practice and change the culture of their schools, districts, or communities. He shows how educators, by reflecting on their past, present, and future practice, can convert frustrations into solvable problems.

This updated workbook covers both the proactive and the responsive models of action research and also includes:

    -Easy-to-understand explanations of methods, steps, and phases
    -A chapter devoted to questionnaires, interviews, observations, and public documents
    -Guidelines for both solo and cooperative projects
    -"How-to" worksheets that guide readers through the process
    -Journal-writing activities at the end of every chapter
    -Case studies of real action research projects

    Practical Action Research for Change is the essential tool to help educators tailor action research to their specific situation and improve professional practice.
