Teacher as Researcher.
Klinghammer, Sarah J.
A discussion of classroom research proposes that classroom-oriented, practical research or evaluation projects are feasible for the language teacher and explains several types of research that might be undertaken. First, it outlines practical and relatively simple ways to examine classroom activity more objectively, such as videotaping for analysis of interactions, discourse, physical movement, time use, and at-task behavior, or analysis of test design. Second, it summarizes five general types of research designs, the techniques used in each, and the kinds of research questions that might be addressed. Third, it focuses on one type of research (single subject design) that has potential for classroom use. The research types include ethnographic, descriptive, correlational, experimental, and case study. (MSE)
