Integrating Teaching, Learning, and Action Research
Enhancing Instruction in the K-12 Classroom

June 2009 | 200 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Integrating Teaching, Learning and Action Research: Enhancing Instruction in the K-12 Classroom demonstrates how action research can be used as an integral component of teaching and learning and how teacher researchers can engage students as participatory researchers to accomplish highly effective learning outcomes. The text details student research processes chapter by chapter, and demonstrates, through examples and multiple lesson plans, how these processes can be incorporated into classroom lessons and linked to state courses of study and performance standards. This timely text provides the means to upgrade student performance and maximize the possibility of success for all.

I adopted it as a second text book used in combination with the primary text for the course.
Mostly to help students do reflection on their teaching.
Students like the book because is very simple to use as a guide for their action research and reflection on classroom teaching.

This book is designed, as it says on the cover, for the enhancement of instruction in the K-12 classroom. I read the book in the hope of finding new approaches to action research within my classrooms but found the book to be specific to K-12 and only loosely based around action research. It is a well considered book but I found the link to action research to be misleading as the emphasis seemed to be on action learning as an alternative re-conceptualisation of the original model. However, that said I found the examples and case studies of most benefit and would recommend the book to those unfamiliar with classroom-based research who want to see what others might have done.
