Action Research to Improve Instruction

My Project

These texts will all help me better explore and understand the world of research. Yin and Creswell are some of the most noted names when it comes to qualitative research, so I would like to better understand their work and how to design my own action research studies.

Action research can help improve my own instruction and will help me as a coach to give evidence-based strategies and support to the other teachers in our school to support our low readers.

These books are all aimed at helping us support our low readers.
