Synopsis

Integrating Teaching, Learning, and Action Research Enhancing Instruction in the K-12 Classroom by Ernest T. Stringer, Dr. Lois McFadyen Christensen, Shelia C. Baldwin

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.

About the Author

Ernest T. Stringer is author of numerous influential books on action research, including Action Research in Education (2008), Action Research in Health (with Bill Genat, 2004), and Action Research in Human Services (with Rosalie Dwyer, 2005). After an early career as primary teacher and school principal, Stringer served as lecturer in education at Curtin University of Technology in Western Australia. From the mid-eighties, based at Curtin's Centre for Aboriginal Studies, he worked collaboratively with Aboriginal staff and community people to develop a wide variety of innovative and highly successful education and community development programs and services. As visiting professor at the University of New Mexico and Texas A&M, he has taught research methods courses and engaged in projects with African American and Latino community and neighborhood groups. As a UNICEF consultant, he recently engaged in a major project to increase parent participation in the schools in East Timor. Stringer has served (until prior to publication of this book) as a member of the editorial board of the Action Research Journal and is past president of the Action Learning and Action Research Association (ALARA). Lois McFadyen Christensen, PhD is an associate professor in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. She is an elementary social studies specialist at the undergraduate and graduate levels teaching undergraduate, masters, and doctoral level course work. For six years, she facilitated a collaborative, cross-disciplined approach on the Birmingham Civil Rights Movement. Dr. Christensen's publications and presentations are often in conjunction with inservice teachers and pertain to social studies research, critical pedagogy, and the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education. Shelia C. Baldwin's education career spans 27 years, with seventeen years in public school and ten in higher education. As a high school teacher of English, Reading and ESL, she taught diverse students who were often struggling and disengaged, which inspired her to eventually pursue her Ph.D. Her early work in action research with high school students to study the cultural diversity in their environment was transformational in her perception of classroom life. Her interest, promoting collaboration between teachers and students in the exploration and implementation of alternative instructional approaches, has been a focal point in her continuing work and research as a teacher educator. She has examined her own classes to learn more about teacher candidates' developing theories about teaching, students, and learning environments. She has developed and supervised service learning field experiences in urban settings for undergraduate and graduate teacher candidates in content literacy courses to provide them with autonomous experiences in diverse settings. Her integration of action research processes introduces the concept of teacher as researcher and guides them toward critical reflection on their experiences that contribute toward their developing theories. She has developed a Master's level action research course for both initial certification candidates and practitioners.
