Teacher Research, Action Research. The Logo Action Research Collaborative. Report No. 91-4.
Watt, Molly Lynn; Watt, Daniel Lynn
This report describes methodologies developed by the LOGO Action Research Collaborative--a national network linking 90 teachers at 9 sites--to facilitate and support collaborative inquiry by teachers into their own teaching practices. The report provides background information on action research as an evolving discipline; identifies three phases of a year-long action research cycle; and describes key strategies developed by the project to support teachers in taking on a research frame of mind, identifying areas of concern, and undertaking and completing action research projects. Several examples illustrate action research investigations undertaken by teachers and demonstrate the benefits of the investigations to the students and teachers involved. In conclusion, the report makes a case for the potential contribution of action research to current educational reform initiatives and school restructuring. Eighty-four references and related readings are listed. (Author/IAH)
