Rick Parsons, Kimberlee Brown

  • Published
  • 176 Pages

Overview

This book introduces students who are also pre-service teachers to the powerful concept of action research -- research which stems from a practical problem and is planned and implemented by the people most likely to be affected by the findings - the teachers. This text provides the specifics of transforming the teacher (or preservice teacher ) into a reflective practitioner and action researcher.
