Using Action Research Methodology to Unite Theory and Practice
Deemer, Sandra A.
Teaching Educational Psychology, v3 n3 Jan 2009
The author describes an action research project given to masters-level preservice teachers in her educational psychology classes to help them connect the theories they are learning with educational problems they have observed or experienced. Students' responses on a six-item survey indicated that they valued the better understanding of how knowledge in educational psychology can serve as a foundation for solving problems in the classroom and the experience with the action research process that they gained from this project.
