Action research; a guide for library media specialists.


Action research; a guide for library media specialists.

Howard, Jody K. and Su A. Eckhardt.

Linworth Publishing, Inc.


112 pages




Howard and Eckhardt (both with the school library program, U. of Colorado-Denver) fill a gap in resources available for library media specialists to develop action research skills for validating successful programs and improving others. Via a sample middle school project, they offer a step-by-step process relevant to practical concerns over accountability, student achievement, school improvement, and collaboration with other school professionals. Roles are described in the areas of instruction, information access, and program administration. The guide includes a sample project for publication, journal and Web resources, and a glossary.
