Now keenly focused on educators engaging in thoughtful critical reflection while planning and conducting educational research, this brief, user-friendly text provides everything a pre-service or in-service educator needs to know in order to follow the research cycle and conduct an action research project from beginning through its completion.  

The third edition has a sharpened focus from previous editions to utilizing reflection as the vehicle for action research. The author carefully guides her  readers to a deeper experience by keeping their focus on engaging in ongoing reflection throughout the action research cycle as a way to better understand how one’s history and experiences affect beliefs, biases, and actions. Emphasizing the reflective processes used in planning and conducting action research studies, data analysis techniques (quantitative and qualitative), and displaying and explaining results, Hendricks’ revised text provides only the most specific information needed to complete each step of the action research cycle in a precise and thoughtful manner.
