This book presents a collection of stories from action research projects in schools and a university. This collection is more than simply an illustration of the scope of action research in education - it shows how projects that differ on a variety of dimensions can raise similar themes, problems and issues. The book begins with theme chapters discussing action research, social justice and partnerships in research. The case study chapters cover topics such as:
* school environment - how to make a school a healthier place to be
* parents - how to involve them more in decision-making
* students as action researchers
* a state system - a collaborative effort between university staff and a state education department
* gender - how to promote gender equity in schools
* improving assessment in the social sciences
* staff development planning
* doing a PhD through action research
* writing up action research projects.
