Editorial Reviews

“The book gives an in-depth, very detailed, step by step guide to action research. This is an excellent resource for school practitioners.”   “The author successfully portrays their life experiences in action research and makes it practical to the reader. The author has a good grasp of professional development.” -Dr. Jason P. Sherlock, Assistant Principal, Bayard Rustin High School, West Chester, PA     “I like the fresh, down to earth approach. It is written with the premise that action research attempts to solve a specific problem, and it takes time to do so. The charts and examples are better than those in competing books.” -Dr. Stephen F. Midlock, Associate Professor, Coordinator — Ed.D. Program in Educational Leadership, College of Education, University of St. Francis, Joliet, IL           “The examples are a wonderful tool for readers who need that visual of 'what should this look like?' and I think that readers from a variety of backgrounds and experiences will find them useful and instructive.” -Emily Pettersen, 5th Grade Teacher, Chesterfield Elementary School, Eureka, MO
