Action Research in the Classroom

This week I wanted to share some information about what I am doing professionally. As a Literacy Support and EAL teacher I am always looking at new practices in the classroom that can improve student learning.


This past month I have been working on an Action Research Project.


Action Research is beneficial because it is carried out by practitioners and therefore gives an insider picture of what is happening. It aims to generate ideas about improving practices to improve learning. It helps us see as practitioners what we need to do to change to improve learning.


The best aspect of Action Research is that it is not conducted alone. It is a cooperative effort with all the members of the community becoming involved and providing feedback.


My project focuses on how regular drills of high frequency words may facilitate EAL students achieve grade level literacy targets.


I look forward to sharing my findings with you at the conclusion of my project.
