Integrating Teaching, Learning, and Action Research: Enhancing Instruction in the K-12 Classroom demonstrates how action research can be used as an integral component of teaching and learning and how teacher researchers can engage students as participatory researchers to accomplish highly effective learning outcomes. The text details student research processes chapter by chapter, and demonstrates, through examples and multiple lesson plans, how these processes can be incorporated into classroom lessons and linked to state courses of study and performance standards.

After an early career as primary teacher and school principal, Ernest T Stringer was lecturer in education at Curtin University of Technology in Western Australia. From the mid-eighties, based at Curtin’s Centre for Aboriginal Studies, he worked collaboratively with Aboriginal staff and community people to develop a wide variety of innovative and highly successful education and community development programs and services. His work with government departments, community-based agencies, business corporations and local governments assisted them to work more effectively with Aboriginal people. In recent years, as visiting professor at the University of New Mexico and Texas A&M University, he taught research methods courses and engaged in projects with African American and Hispanic community and neighborhood groups. As a UNICEF consultant he recently engaged in a major project to increase parent participation in the schools in East Timor. He is author of the texts “Action Research (Sage 2007),” “Action Research in Education (Pearson 2008),” “Action Research in Health” (with Bill Genat, Pearson 2004), and “Action Research in Human Services” (with Rosalie Dwyer, Pearson 2005). He is a member of the editorial board of the Action Research Journal and Past President of the Action Learning and Action Research Association (ALARA).
