A Toolkit for Action Research
Alber, Sandra M.
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc.
This book facilitates the completion of action research studies by providing a series of tasks that guide action researchers from the beginning of a project and selecting a topic for study, to completion of the project and editing final reports. All too often, students and practicing professionals in professional development schools are overwhelmed by the thought of doing an action research project and resort to using quasi-experimental designs. "A Toolkit for Action Research" puts an end to both, with the result being a life-long learning and reflection tool for teachers. This workbook can be used alone, or in conjunction with traditional action research texts, such as Daniel Tomal's "Action Research for Educators".
Descriptors: Quasiexperimental Design, Professional Development Schools, Action Research, Researchers, Reflection, Educational Research
