Foster a schoolwide learning environment with this action research model!

This resource takes a close look at how schoolwide action research can support school change and improved student achievement. The authors discuss steps for implementing the schoolwide action research process, describe what the approach looks like in action, and show readers how:

the schoolwide action-research process works in primary, middle or secondary schools;

study groups move from discussion to action that improves teacher practice;

head teachers and district leaders can support schoolwide action research.

"Clearly shows the success that can occur when a staff learns together. I highly recommend this book to aspiring and beginning principals, as well as those with years of experience." -- Paul Young, Executive Director, West After School Center
"Whole-Faculty Study Groups (WFSGs) have proven to be an effective vehicle for job-embedded professional learning in our district. We will be using this new resource to take us to the next level!" -- Anita Kissinger, Executive Director, Quality and Development
"Clauset, Lick, and Murphy get to the heart of continuous improvement and closing the knowing-doing gap with this powerful tool." -- Susan Zook, Associate Superintendent
"What a fantastic tool to ensure that districts will be successful in increasing student performance and implementing academic school improvement! The authors have used their understanding of the current issues in education to provide school districts with comprehensive guidelines that will guarantee success for schools involved in action research using data to improve student learning." -- Cinde Wendell, Superintendent
"Imagine the impact when every teacher, principal, and central office administrator participates in a small group that focuses on increasing student achievement. The schoolwide action research program described in this book is not mere reform-results are nothing less than transformational." -- From the Foreword by Bert L'Homme
