A brief, user-friendly, solid look at the action research cycle and the knowledge to work through each step.

In Cher Hendricks’s Improving Schools Through Action Research, educators learn what they need to know about the action research cycle and get practical help for working through each step of the cycle–from choosing a topic and generating research questions to analyzing data and reporting results and conclusions.
