Summary

Action research is very much a narrative process, building on stories of practice and of those making meaning of that practice. For this reason, this practical, hands-on and user-friendly book emphasises real examples. Illustrative case studies are used throughout to demonstrate and explore the potential for change in real social situations. The book maps the territory of both theory and practice, providing theoretical perspectives and practical examples for practitioners of action research in education contexts. Each chapter includes: - A 'how to' section based on concrete examples and dilemmas - Commentary which relates this example to the broader field - A discussion of the underlying theoretical approach - Quality issues - Discussion of both ethical and pragmatic decision making At a time when the term 'action research' is widely misused, and often reduced to a form of low-level evaluation of imposed educational initiatives, this book seeks to preserve the academic integrity of action research, and de-mystify the process. The mix of theoretical grounding and focus on real issues will be a real benefit to Master's level or advanced undergraduate students on Education and Research Methods courses.
