In this practical book, Richard Sagor describes how teachers can use a process called collaborative action research to both improve the teaching-learning process and make meaningful contributions to the development of the teaching profession. This second purpose is important, Sagor says, because “until teachers become involved in generating the knowledge that informs their practice, they will remain cast as subordinate workers rather than dynamic professionals.”
