Setting the Stage for Action Research: A Discussion of Philosophical and Practical Considerations
Stephens, Dianne; Kitchen, Julian
Ontario Action Researcher, v7 n2 Article 1 2004
In this second of four articles discussing the introduction of action research to a class of pre-service teachers, Julian and Dianne state the purpose and context of our work, and revisit in detail the intense discussions we had prior to undertaking our two-tiered action research adventure. Specifically, we elaborate on the beliefs, values and philosophy that motivated our undertaking; we then survey three models of action research and address our reasons for ultimately selecting one of those models.
