Industry Reviews

"The Reflective Educator's Guide to Classroom Research is the best step-by-step (but non-prescriptive) action research guide I have come across. This book guides teachers to ask important questions about their own teaching while empowering them to affect change through teacher inquiry. The authors engage the reader in thought-provoking exercises through which an action research project is designed - a great guide through a truly transformative process."

-- Emily Bonner, Assistant Professor, Curriculum and Instruction

"This book is a practical step-by-step guide to get you started on a journey of investigating your own practice. The exercises and examples will carry you through the process of inquiry and support and guide you along the way to a successful ending."

-- Rita Hagevik, Graduate Director of Science Education
"This text provides teachers with easy to follow steps to conducting their own teacher inquiry. The authors provide examples throughout the chapters that illustrate the steps and their explanations. Teacher inquiry has the potential to be a powerful change agent in education. This text empowers teachers to become classroom researchers." -- Virginia Harder, Professor
