Surviving and Thriving with Teacher Action Research: Reflections and Advice from the Field (Educational Psychology)

 
9781433129872: Surviving and Thriving with Teacher Action Research: Reflections and Advice from the Field (Educational Psychology)

Action research can be a transformative learning experience that strengthens educators’ practice and empowers our voices. For the novice action researcher, however, it can sometimes be frustrating, isolating, and overwhelming. Surviving and Thriving with Teacher Action Research is an outstanding companion for educators embarking on the action research journey. The book shares the collected wisdom of more than thirty experienced teacher researchers. Designed to guide readers through the research process, the book is divided into five sections that reflect critical components of action research: developing a research question, designing a plan, engaging student voice, implementing the research process, analyzing data and sharing results. Relevant for both novice and seasoned action researchers, Surviving and Thriving is perfect for use in graduate education coursework, among professional learning communities, or by teachers embarking on action research independently. The text design, which includes introductory statements and guiding questions for each section, allows the book to stand alone as a guide for action research or it can serve as an outstanding complement to a more traditional, procedurally focused action research methods textbook.

Review:

«Classroom teachers who are intimately involved in the action research process. The honesty, insight, and passion come through in each of these narratives, and collectively they articulate how action research can be used to facilitate teacher empowerment and academic development. What a robust and practical resource for educators, school and district leaders, and teacher preparation programs!» (Ernest Morrell, Teachers College, Columbia University)
«This is an important and inspiring collection of essays that every educator should read. To continuously improve learning and teaching, we need far fewer edicts from policymakers and academics and far more teacher action research.» (Tony Wagner, Author of Creating Innovators
and The Global Achievement Gap)
«It is not often that I read any book from cover to cover in one sitting, but I did just that. Lattimer and Caillier have organized insightful reflections into a shared learning journey from finding research questions that are ‘meaningful, measureable, and manageable’ to learning how to navigate the intersections of practice, theory, and research.» (Margaret Riel, Director of the Center for Collaborative Action Research, Pepperdine University; Past Chair of the Action Research SIG with AERA, and Co-founder of the Action Research Network of the Americas)
