Teachers are the single most important element in helping every child succeed in school. Making Classroom Inquiry Work: Techniques for Effective Action Research is designed to serve those who wish to delve deeper into their action research or as leaders in teacher research and reflective practice. Robert P. Pelton is also the author of Action Research for Teacher Candidates: Using Classroom Data to Enhance Instruction, written in the hopes of equipping teachers-in-training with the skills needed for action research: a process that leads to focused, effective, and responsive strategies that help students succeed. These two books serve as both a perfect training curriculum for pre-service teachers at the undergraduate or graduate level and as an excellent vehicle for professional development for in-service teachers.
