  2. 2. Action Research Defined: • According to Richard A. Schmuck (1997) Action research is a model of professional development where educators study student learning related to their own teaching a process that allows to learn about their own instructional practices and to continue to monitor improved student learning.
  3. 3. Action Research Defined: • Conducting action research provides educators with an avenue to reflect on one’s own teaching practices and engage in self-directed learning with the ultimate goal of improving student learning.
  4. 4. • Action research is a natural extension of good teaching. Action Research Defined: analyzing their needs adjusting the curriculum Important skills demonstrated by fine teachers. observing closely
  5. 5. • Action Research is a process through which teachers collaborate in evaluating practice, try out new strategies, and record their work in a form that is understandable by other teachers. Action Research Defined:
  6. 6. The Action Research Process ACTION RESEARCH Identifying a Classroom Problem Developing & Implementing an Action Research Plan Using & Sharing Results Collecting & Analyzing Data
  7. 7. The Action Research Process Action research never really ends because learning is a cyclical process.
  8. 8. The Action Research Process An action researcher is always observing, analyzing, designing, assessing and adjusting. The cyclical nature of action research provides teachers with ongoing opportunities to reflect on and refine their own teaching - practices.
  9. 9. The Phases of Action Research 1. Identifying the Classroom Problem 2. Developing and Implementing an Action Research Plan 3. Collecting and Analyzing Data 4. Making Instructional Decisions and Sharing Results
  10. 10. The Phases of Action Research To begin the action research process, teachers must first observe, questions and reflect on the actual current situation in order to investigate the classroom concerns. - Beginning the Action Research Process This activity five probing statements to guide this initial phased of action research. 1. Identifying the Classroom Problem
  11. 11. The Phases of Action Research After completing this activity, choose one concern that is most important for the learners, that is a priority learning need, and that can produce positive results. Select target you can impact that aligned with the curricular standards. The problem statement will become the framework of the action research. 1. Identifying the Classroom Problem
  12. 12. The Phases of Action Research According to Hubbard and Power (1999) Before engaging in the “research” of action research, it is helpful to outline actions by answering the “What” the “How” and the “When” 2. Developing and Implementing an Action Research Plan
  13. 13. The Phases of Action Research Describe the action research plan as a kind of backbone for the study – skeletal frame on which to hang all emerging thought about the research question, data collection, and how to sustain the research. Consider different instructional approaches geared towards meeting learners’ instructional goal. 2. Developing and Implementing an Action Research Plan
  14. 14. The Phases of Action Research In order to build a complete picture of learners’ learning abilities, data should be gathered from any sources of information. In research terminology, the process of collecting multiple sources of data for every problem or issue being studied is called triangulation. (Sagor 1992) 3. Collecting and Analyzing Data
  15. 15. The Phases of Action Research Examples of classroom data collection tools include but not limited to: • Observation (checklists, anecdotal records, charts/grid), interviews and conversations, learners’ work, grades, reports cards, cumulative records and test. 3. Collecting and Analyzing Data
  16. 16. The Phases of Action Research After planning, teaching and collecting data, it is very important to follow through by analyzing the results of the action research and making instructional decisions based on your findings. “Where do I go next?” 4. Making Instructional Decisions and Sharing Results
  17. 17. The Phases of Action Research Once the learners meet the instructional goals identified on the action research plan, it is time to Share and Reports Results. 4. Making Instructional Decisions and Sharing Results
