Empowering Teachers as Researchers.
Cox, Anne Marshall; Olson, Joanne K.
As educators seek to bridge the gap between research and practice, action research empowers teachers to inform others of the results found in their own schools. This paper describes a step-by-step approach to help teachers and administrators conduct classroom action research in their own schools. The five steps are as follows: (1) problem formulation; (2) data planning and collection; (3) data analysis; (4) sharing results; and (5) implementing changes. The paper also describes the background of action research in science education and discusses different types of action research. (PVD)
