Action Research: A Developmental Model of Professional Socialization
Schoen, Sharon
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v80 n5 p211-216 May-Jun 2007
This article proposes a developmental model to socialize teachers at all levels (preservice, novice, and experienced) and in all positions (general education, special education, elementary school, middle school, and high school) in the methodology of action research. A process for advancing professional understanding is theorized to include the phases of acquisition, fluency, and generalization. Within each phase, a confluence of skills, abilities, attitudes, and contexts are addressed to highlight critical considerations that facilitate the systematic acculturation of teachers to this potentially compelling research approach.
