Throughout the book, student work samples and classroom vignettes bring the content to life.

The Classroom Researcher is designed for teachers, administrators, and professional developers who are interested in learning how research can be used to improve instruction. The book begins with an overview of educational research and an identification of the types and purpose of research designs. This is followed by an explanation as to how and why research is used in education. Users are then guided through the process of identifying a problem, compiling a literature review that synthesizes research related to the problem, and developing a product that addresses the problem. This workbook presents valuable research information in a non-threatening and non-statistical format. Educators can easily progress through the book and begin practicing research in the classroom to better meet the needs of their students.
