Action Research: A Field Perspective.
This paper presents the personal narrative of a teacher who engaged in action research in her classroom. A step-by-step description, outlined in the prescribed form for conducting action research (plan, act, observe, and reflect), notes the successes and failures encountered throughout the experiment. A student teacher was conducting action research on a different topic simultaneously in the classroom. How collaborating on the two projects affected the cooperating teacher-student teacher relationship is described. A discussion is offered on the value of action research in the classroom, in preservice teacher education, and in in-service education programs for practicing teachers. (JD)
