Summary "This is a guide for teachers who wish to undertake research in their classrooms and schools with a view to improving their practice. Classroom research, as described in this book, will enable teachers to enhance their own or their colleagues' teaching, to test the assumptions of educational theory in practice and to implement and evaluate whole school developments. The comprehensively revised and updated third edition emphasizes the contribution teacher research can make to creating a discourse around teaching and learning, whole school development and creating learning communities within schools. A number of new cameos and examples have been added with an increased focus on models of teaching and learning. The book also contains case studies, discussions and a description of methods for collecting and analyzing data. The ways in which classroom research can be reported, published and linked to the curriculum, teaching and staff development are also described."--BOOK JACKET
