Action-Research: A New Style of Politics, Education and Ministry. Paper Number 6.
Palmer, Parker J.; Jacobson, Elden
This document, the sixth of seven essays, investigates the relationship of the church, the university and urban society in the area of politics, education, and ministry. This manual describes a basic methodology of the project, "Action-research". The essay is of the "how to do it" breed, with a detailed description of the stages in an action-research project, some of the basic research tools, and suggestions regarding organization. Action-research, in which research is conceived as a process of political action, has demonstrated its utility as a training device for professionals and students as an organization tool for citizens' groups wishing to make an impact on their community.
