A Practical Guide to Action Research for Literacy Educators

In celebration of International Literacy Day 2012, Global Literacy Professional Development Network and IRA's Global Operations Unit released A Practical Guide to Action Research for Literacy Educators. Written by Glenda Nugent, Sakil Malik, and Sandra Hollingsworth, the guide provides valuable information and practical tips for educators in any setting who are interested in improving their practice by using Action Research.

"The timing for the publication of this guidebook could not be better," writes Luis Crouch of Global Partnership for Education in the foreword. With an ever-increasing global emphasis on accountability, the guidebook offers ideas for improving educational practices through Action Research and supporting successful student literacy outcomes.
