Grassroots Action Research and the Greater Good (La investigación acción de base y el bien mayor)
Rainey, Isobel
PROFILE: Issues in Teachers' Professional Development, v13 n1 p31-54 Apr 2011
This study examines the action research topics and topic preferences of two groups of grassroots teachers: active researchers, and potential researchers. The analysis of the topics appears to indicate that, over the past decade, action research at the teaching of English at the grassroots level to speakers of other languages has been principally understood in terms of professional development with respect to teachers' methodologies and learners' learning behaviours. A nascent concern for a more ample approach to professional development and issues conducive to the greater good of the profession can, it is mooted, flourish only with the collaboration of all relevant stakeholders.
