Introduction to Critical Reflection and Action for Teacher Researchers provides crucial direction for educators looking to improve their teaching and maximise learning. While many students can grasp the basic elements of researching their practice and can write about practitioner research, some need guidance and assistance to reflect meaningfully on their teaching practice so as to articulate their educational values. This book provides this guidance.

By exploring how to engage in an authentic, practical and personalised framework, the book encourages critical reflection and action on educational practice. Moving through the process of reflecting on practice, engaging in critical thinking and planning and taking action, it helps the reader to subsequently generate educational theory from their own personal learning. Examples from the authors' experiences illustrate the issues raised in each section, with `Pause and Reflect' activities, guidelines for conducting a research project and annotated further reading available for every chapter.

Introduction to Critical Reflection and Action for Teacher Researchers is based on the idea that reflection is in itself a deliberate action and something we must live - it is key to understanding our practice and is a core component of action research. This book is a valuable guide for teachers, trainee teachers and researchers interested in reflecting on and enhancing their teaching practice.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Serving as a comprehensive overview of action research, this book pursues two threads. First, it introduces critical reflection and action research, providing a wealth of relevant concepts, while emphasizing that teachers must examine and clarify their educational values. Second, it outlines practical aspects of engaging in a first action research project... One area in which this book excels is in inviting teachers to challenge their incumbent points of view regarding teaching and learning."- James Rigney, Educational Action Research
