Abstract

The opening sentences to the Preface of this book state its purpose very clearly: This book was written for practicing and prospective educators. Our main goal in
writing this book was to provide practical guidelines for school practitioners who would like to carry out action research in their current or future educational settings
(p. v). The contents of the book prove the accuracy of the opening statement by providing a scaffolded learning experience for all through each of the eight chapters.
