Reviews:
  Sharon A. Kearney, principal, Sparks Elementary School, Maryland
      This book helped our school and university partnership to successfully communicate and implement action research within our schoolhouse. As a result, all stakeholders were aware of the value, potential and outcomes of well though-out classroom inquiry.
  Lauren Miksa, second grade teacher, Mechanicsville Elementary School, Maryland
      By using the guidance provided in this book, I was able to decide on a topic and make sense of my action research results.
  Rachel Carpenter Heller, teacher, Woodburn Elementary School, Morgantown, West Virginia
      The information in this book takes the guess work out of classroom inquiry. Action research is helping me better meet the needs of my students.
  Richard Sagor, founding director of the Institute for the Study of Inquiry in Education
      This book provides the reader with a thoughtful examination of the most critical issues confronted by teachers seeking to use action research to improve the quality of their students' education.
