This accessible guide provides practical support on becoming research engaged and research active within the school and beyond. It explores the meaning of research and clarifies multiple types of research which lead to different views on ‘what works’, all whilst showing how to engage with the latest educational findings and how to conduct classroom-based research as part of career-long professional development.

Divided into three parts, this book examines the various understandings of being ‘research-engaged’ and covers key issues such as:

  • Finding and interpreting research
  • How to apply and evaluate findings in reliable ways
  • Planning and carrying out a classroom-based project
  • Building a culture of research within a school
  • Establishing local research networks
  • Publishing work

Illustrated with inspiring examples of how to these implement ideas in schools, The Teachers’ Guide to Research is perfect for practicing schools teachers, student teachers and educational leaders who are looking to expand their research knowledge and rekindle their professional curiosity.
