The Action Research Planner : Doing Critical Participatory Action Research

The Action Research Planner : Doing Critical Participatory Action Research

Description

A fully-updated and reworked version of the classic book by Stephen Kemmis and Robin McTaggart, now joined by Rhonda Nixon, The Action Research Planner is a detailed guide to developing and conducting a critical participatory action research project. The authors outline new views on `participation' (based on Jurgen Habermas's notion of a `public sphere'), `practice' (as shaped by practice architectures), and `research' (as research within practice traditions). They provide five extended examples of critical participatory action research studies. The book includes a range of resources for people planning a critical participatory research initiative, providing guidance on how to establish an action research group and identify a shared concern, research ethics, principles of procedure for action researchers, protocols for collaborative work, keeping a journal, gathering evidence, reporting, and choosing academic partners.

Unlike earlier editions, The Action Research Planner focuses specifically on critical participatory action research, which occupies a particular (critical) niche in the action research 'family'.

The Action Research Planner is an essential guide to planning and undertaking this type of research.
