Action Research for New Teachers Evidence-Based Evaluation of Practice Press Reviews

There are many books out there on action research and for the uninitiated trainee, they are a minefield. This book gets to the crux of what they need to know and how to go about it. It gets away from the idea that the trainees need to experiment with their pupils and focuses on improving their teaching. It also tackles gaming your research to show improvement. The stages of research, and identifying pitfalls make this book a straight forward guide to aid trainees completing action research in the classroom. -- Lorraine Smith A book that really focuses on, and is tailored specifically to, the needs of new teachers, presenting the research process in a clear, logical format and showing how research can be used to improve classroom practice in an achievable way. It makes action research uncomplicated, accessible and doable, even for busy teachers. -- Alison Hooper
