Teacher training:    Action research ( I )
Action research can make you a "student of teaching". 

What is action research?
It is a process in which teachers investigate teaching and learning so as to improve their own and their students' learning.

Why should teachers do action research?

  • To help them notice what they and their students really do, rather than what they think they do.
  • To get feedback as to the success or failure of what they are doing.
  • To help them tailor teaching and learning to their learners and their settings.
  • So that they are able to justify the teaching and learning choices they make.
  • To increase their knowledge of learning and teaching and become authorities on teaching.
  • To become less dependent on decisions made by people who are far away from their learning and teaching sites, people like textbook writers and school administrators.
  • To ensure that they don't become bored with teaching.

What are the steps in the action research process?
Sue Davidoff and Owen van den Berg (1990) suggest four steps: plan, teach / act, observe and reflect. Here are some guidelines for each step.

  • Plan
    • Identify the problem area.
    • Narrow it down so that it is manageable.
    • Investigate the problem. When does it happen? Who does it affect? Where does it happen?
    • Think about what might be causing the problem. Talk to other teachers and/or read to get more ideas about this.
    • Think about a solution and how to implement it.
    • Think about what evidence you will collect to decide whether your action is successful or not. How will you collect it? How will you analyse it?
  • Teach / Act
    • Implement your solution.
  • Observe
    • Gather evidence which you will analyse to decide whether your solution was successful or not.
  • Reflect
    • Analyse the evidence you gathered. Has the problem been solved? If not, what step will you try next? If yes, what problem will you try to solve now?
