Action Research

Good Teachers ask themselves:

  • Are my students learning?

  • Are my teaching methods effective?

  • What difference does my teaching make in developing the knowledge and skills of my students?

    Action research is a powerful method to help

    teachers know that their practices are

    having the desired results.

Action Research

A Brief History

Kurt Lewin developed the idea in the 1940s.

“to describe work that did not separate the investigation from the action needed to solve the problem.”

Stephen Corey applied Lewin’s work to the educational setting.

“We are convinced that the disposition to study…the consequences of our own teaching is more likely to change and improve our

practices than is reading about what someone else

has discovered of his teaching.”

(Corey, 1953, pg. 70)

A Practical Guide to Action Research for Literacy Educators; Nugent,

Malik, Hollingsworth; 2012, pg4


What is action research
What is Action Research?

“Learning by doing” “a individual or group of people identifying a problem, and doing something to resolve it, evaluating their efforts, and if not satisfied, trying again.”

“If you think about what you are doing and make a change, you are doing action research.”

Action Research is systematic and involves collecting data on which we analyze and reflect upon.

A Practical Guide to Action Research for Literacy Educators; Nugent,

Malik, Hollingsworth; 2012, p. 4-5
