The Sage Handbook of Educational Action Research free pdf 'Action research continues to play a major role in democratising educational inquiry. This volume demonstrates why this is the case. It provides a set of articulate and sensitive analyses that deserve a wide readership.' - Michael W. Apple, John Bascom Professor of Education, University of Wisconsin, US- Madison and World Scholar and Professor of Educational Policy Studies, Institute of Education, University of London, UK This handbook presents and critiques predominant and emergent traditions of Educational Action Research internationally. Now a prominent methodology, Educational Action Research is well suited to exploring, developing and sustaining change processes both in classrooms and whole organisations such as schools, Departments of Education, and many segments of universities. The handbook contains theoretical and practical based chapters by highly respected scholars whose work has been seminal in building knowledge and expertise in the field. It also contains chapters exemplifying the work of prominent practitioner and community groups working outside universities. The Editors provide an introduction and conclusion, as well as an opening chapter which charts the historical development of action research and provides an analysis of its underlying theories. The handbook is organized into four sections, each beginning with a short introduction: - Action research methodology: diversity of rationales and practices - Professional: Knowledge production, staff development, and the status of educators - Personal: Self-awareness, development and identity - Political: Popular knowledge, difference, and frameworks for change This is a key resource for scholars and graduate students at doctors and masters levels, as well as school leaders and administrators. Susan Noffke is Associate Professor of Curriculum

About Bridget Somekh

I have done historical/conceptual work in social studies as well as some analysis of my own practice as a social studies teacher educator, both of these with a particular eye toward issues of anti-racist education. I have recently completed a number of publications reflecting these broad research interests. A natural outgrowth of both the conceptual and field studies has been on the need for a more adequate framework for curriculum history and curriculum development (including that for teacher education) to reflect the diverse segment of American education. I have recently published on participatory action research and worked to facilitate understanding of diversity among pre-service teachers through social and community inquiry assignments. Bridget Somekh is based at Manchester Metropolitan University as well as University of Canterbury.
