Learning to inquire together, to generate knowledge and action simultaneously-that's action research. This book provides practical guidance for conducting schoolwide action research to improve student learning. Emily Calhoun, a co-author of the ASCD book, The Self-Renewing School, provides detailed instructions for conducting schoolwide action research. School staff should begin with a broad assessment of the health of the school or with the perception of a problem in one area, such as students' achievement in mathematics. Staff should obtain input from parents, community members, and students as the school begins the 5-step cycle of action research: First, seek agreement with others in your school community on what to study. Second, collect and share information about students' knowledge, skills, and attitudes. Third, search your own experiences and examine educational research for strategies and programs that will improve your students' math understanding. Fourth, collaborate to improve curriculum and instruction in math. Fifth, collect data on results, study effects, and begin the cycle all over again. Calhoun provides background information on the origins of action research, examples of data-collection forms and results of data analysis, and answers to commonly asked questions.
