Using Action Research to Examine Teacher Strategy Effectiveness
Cox, Becky J.; Cox, Betty J.; Vann, Martha
Journal of Learning in Higher Education, v8 n1 p83-89 Spr 2012
Successful teachers strive to ensure that their students learn to their maximum abilities. Is action research a valuable way for graduate students to review their effectiveness as teachers? Do students learn more through varied teaching strategies and techniques? The authors examined graduate students' perceptions of action research projects analyzing student achievement. Three middle school teachers conducted the action research projects with their assigned students. This article has two purposes: 1) to share experiences encountered while creating an action research project and implementing the plan; and 2) to share summaries of graduate students' action research.
