From the Back Cover:

Using a metaphorical picture of self-reflection as an intriguing journey, Action Research for Teachers: Traveling the Yellow Brick Road is written to serve as a problem solving tool for literacy educators.  The authors begin by explaining the importance of action research as a critical phase of reflective practice. Detailed definitions of research stages are followed by concise ‘stepping stones” explaining in simple terms how to engage in each stage of action research.  Five case studies of practicing literacy teachers scaffold the action research process and illustrate how to integrate it into everyday teaching practice. New to this edition is a case study done solely within an electronic teaching and learning environment.

Highlighting instructional self-improvement, this text assists teachers in becoming adept at using students and colleagues as resources in their action research journey. The book provides a clear and thorough set of directives for determining a research plan, organizing the research, developing evaluation tools, and synthesizing the resulting data. Action Research for Teachers: Traveling the Yellow Brick Road is a linchpin in the instructional advancement of any reading professional.
