Synopsis

Action Research in Education by Anne Campbell

Action Research in Education traces the evolution of classroom research as it connects to curriculum, pedagogy and professional practice in schools. It includes an original introduction by the editors that makes the argument for the selection of each piece and shows where each sits in the field. Volume One: Historical Perspectives in Action Research in Schools: From Curriculum Development to Enhancing Teacher Professional Learning traces the focus for classroom research from curriculum development in the 1970s and 1980s to professional development and learning and teaching in the 1990s and to the present day. This volume also presents some key papers from classroom research that focus on pupil learning, teachers' teaching, teachers' learning, and development and pupil voice. Volume Two: Distinctive Methodologies Employed in Action Research in Schools takes up major methodological issues by drawing on critiques of action inquiry while also seeking to further illuminate matters in relation to the construction of professional knowledge and professional agency. Volume Three: Key Examples of Action Research in Schools within International Settings draws on major research projects focusing on classrooms from the 1970s to the present day.
