From the Back Cover:

Action Research Essentials offers students, faculty, and practitioners an accessible and practical guide on how and when to do action research most effectively.

Action Research Essentials contains a variety of online resources as well as rubrics and checklists to help students design questions, evaluate online sources, write the literature review, and create the action research report.
