Written for prospective and practicing teachers interested in carrying out an action research project, this second edition of a bestseller takes readers through each stage of the process: formulating a research question, collaborating with others, collecting data, analyzing data, writing up and presenting classroom research, and assessing the quality of the work. Exercises in each chapter help educators craft and complete an entire piece of action research, one step at a time. This resource demonstrates how inquiry can be a powerful mechanism for professional staff development across grade levels and subject areas and demonstrates the relationship between inquiry and differentiated instruction, data-driven decision making, progress monitoring, and Response to Intervention. The authors show teachers how to gain insights into their research questions through the effective use of seven forms of data collection: field notes, documents/artifacts, interviews, focus groups, journals, surveys, and literature and include Critical Friend Group feedback as an additional form of data collection. The new edition features: An updated section that illustrates how Professional Learning Communities work New ways to collect data, including: digital photos, video, blogging, and standardized test scores/assessment measures Three new simplified models for documenting inquiry results Many added examples of teacher inquiry from middle school and high school settings An important new chapter on assessing inquiry projects

Nancy Fichtman Dana is currently Professor of Education in the School of Teaching and Learning at the University of Florida, Gainesville, and has been studying practitioner inquiry for the last twenty years.nbsp; During this time, she has developed and taught classes on practitioner research for undergraduate, masters, and doctoral students, coached the practitioner research of numerous educators from various districts across the nation, as well as published nine books and over 50 book chapters and articles in professional journals focused on teacher and principal professional development and practitioner inquiry.

Diane Yendol-Hoppey is the Director of the Benedum Collaborative and a Professor of Education at West Virginia University. The Benedum Collaborative is one of the oldest school/university partnerships in the nation. Diane spent the first thirteen years of her career in education teaching in Pennsylvania and Maryland. In her work at Penn State, the University of Florida, and West Virginia University, Diane focuses on job-embedded teacher professional development and the cultivation of teacher leadership. Her research explores how powerful vehicles for teacher professional development including teacher inquiry, professional learning communities, and coaching/mentoring can support school improvement. She has authored numerous studies which have appeared in such journals as Teachers College Record and Journal of Teacher Education. She is coauthor (with Nancy Fichtman Dana) of three books, The Reflective Educator's Guide to Classroom Research: Learning to Teach and Teaching to Learn through Practitioner Inquiry, The Reflective Educator's Guide to Professional Development: Coaching Inquiry-Oriented Learning Communities and The Reflective Educator's Guide to Mentoring: Strengthening Practice through Knowledge, Story, and Metaphor, all from Corwin Press.
