In this third edition of the renowned approach to teacher inquiry and data analysis, the authors add forward-thinking substance to their methods of formulating action research questions, collecting and analyzing data, and creating lasting solutions.
In addition to illustrative real-life examples and practical exercises, new features include:
“This book is an essential tool in the effort to construct teaching on a foundation of thought and care. Rejecting the simple, connect-the-dots view of teaching so prevalent today, Nancy Fichtman Dana and Diane Yendol-Hoppey invite us into a world of teaching that is deeply intellectual and fundamentally ethical. They show us how to achieve this, offering practical, concrete steps any teacher or group of teachers can take as they work to transform what they already do informally and privately into something intentional, systematic, and public.”
"The Reflective Teacher's Guide to Classroom Research is a refreshing text that provides the tools for both novice and experienced teachers to evolve from mere technicians to reflective, inquiry-oriented professionals. It views teaching as a transformative, exciting venture and should be required reading in all teacher education programs."
"Building on the awareness that teachers have an enormous amount of knowledge that they have accumulated through their years of teaching, the authors show how this knowledge can be mined by teachers studying their own practice, making visible the complexities of teaching. Readers of this book experience not only what it is like to do classroom research, but perhaps as important, gain an understanding of how teachers can become scholars of their own practice."
