In this second edition of his best-selling volume The Action Research Guidebook, Richard Sagor provides updated tools and insights to guide the implementation of school-based research for student success. Ideal for teacher leaders and teacher teams, this practical guidebook features new examples, activities and leadership applications that reflect the recent growth of professional learning communities, wider acceptance of standards, and the need for more qualitative research. Sequentially organized to be used as you go, the book follows Sagor's four-stage process developed from his many years of experience training educators: clarifying visions/targets; articulating theory; implementing action and collecting data; and reflecting on data and planning informed action. Inside are numerous tables, charts, handouts, forms, and worksheets to demystify the action research process. This handbook will also be valuable to principals, counsellors, and other educators wishing to apply the action research process to school improvement.
