ThisMoreIn this practical book, Richard Sagor describes how teachers can use a process called collaborative action research to both improve the teaching-learning process and make meaningful contributions to the development of the teaching profession. This second purpose is important, Sagor says, because until teachers become involved in generating the knowledge that informs their practice, they will remain cast as subordinate workers rather than dynamic professionals. Drawing on his work with Project LEARN (League of Educational Action Researchers in the Northwest), Sagor takes readers through the five steps of collaborative action research, emphasizing that the process is one that will pull teachers out of the harmful isoliation of their classrooms and enable them to consult and work with one another in the way that other professionals are accustomed to doing.
