Excerpt from Research Paper:

The case studies compiled and edited by Caro-Brice (2007) provide a somewhat broader perspective than the singular case study conducted by Coles-Ritchie and Lugo (2010). These studies are all geared towards promoting equality in instructional methods and learning rates in diverse classroom settings, however, making them directly useful in this review and plan development.

Some of the central common findings of the studies compiled by Caro-Brice (2007) and the lessons that can be drawn from these findings include the importance of attitude and interpersonal approach throughout the action research/instructional supervision process, especially in its initial stages, and the importance of demonstration and reevaluation during and following the implementation phase of the action research plan. The truly collaborative nature of action research in these contexts is also emphasized, and the reasons for this importance -- namely increased efficacy and confidence -- are clearly outlined.

Mitchell et al. (2009) examined the use of action research in the development and assistance of new teachers, which yields insights into other potential uses and effects of action research as well. Examining some of the typical identified problems that new teachers face and the abundant literature addressing most of these common problems, Mitchell et al. (2009) demonstrate effective means of action research interaction that is more case-specific and less general than typical seminars. This enables newer and less experienced teachers to more effectively identify and confront issues early on (Mitchell et al. 2009).

This study is especially useful for the details provided regarding the interaction of the instructional supervisor and the instructor during the action research process. The communication of information in this relationship is…

    action research, there may be many cycles because of the need to find evidence that supports the hypothesis. Action research might have multiple cycles by design, but it might simply require multiple cycles in order to complete the research. At other times, action research can be refined through each cycle. If the first cycle does not work as well as hoped -- and there are a significant number of

    The authors further note that the National Research Council (2003) state that the "obligation to treat individuals as autonomous agents whose decisions on whether or not to participate in research are to be respected and not overridden by a researcher" (as sited in Nolen & Vander Putten, 2007, p. 402). When considered in the context of students as a protected research group in a K- 12 classroom this obligation may

    Brandt (2003) offers ten ways to determine if a school indeed meets the criteria of a learning organization. The first characteristic of a learning organization is that it encourages adaptive behavior in response to differing circumstances. The second is that the learning organization has challenging, but achievable objectives and goals. The third is that members of the organization can accurately identify the organizations' stages of development (Brandt, 2003). The learning

  • Social Science Research Are Qualitative and Quantitative

    social science research are qualitative and quantitative research methods. Qualitative research is believed to operate from a subjective, constructionist view of reality, whereas quantitative research operates from an objective, positivist viewpoint of the world. There has been quite a bit of debate over the merits of each of these approaches, often with one paradigm belittling the assumptions of the other. The current literature review explores the philosophical foundations of
