Summary This book makes accessible to teachers and teacher trainees a research area that has largely been the province of academics: the systematic study of what really happens in language classrooms. Classroom research is an important area for all those involved in education because there is still so much that we do not understand about how classroom language lessons work. In this book the authors define the aims and principles of classroom research, present some of the findings in key areas and guide the reader through the practicalities of setting up and carrying out investigative projects. --From publisher's description
