This book facilitates the completion of action research studies by providing a series of tasks that guide action researchers from the beginning of a project and selecting a topic for study, to completion of the project and editing final reports. All too often, students and practicing professionals in professional development schools are overwhelmed by the thought of doing an action research project and resort to using quasi-experimental designs. A Toolkit for Action Research puts an end to both, with the result being a life-long learning and reflection tool for teachers. This workbook can be used alone, or in conjunction with traditional action research texts, such as Daniel Tomal's Action Research for Educators.

Education Law, 5th Edition provides a comprehensive survey of the legal problems and issues that confront school administrators and policymakers today. This textbook is organized around the belief that students need to read court cases to understand the subtlety and richness of the law, but for legal neophytes, cases without discussion and interpretation are often too difficult to comprehend. Thus, the text balances an explanation of the important principles of education law, with actual court decisions to illuminate these concepts. The court decisions are carefully edited to highlight issues most relevant to administrators, and each chapter explores implications for policy and practice. New in the Fifth Edition: Additional content on bullying, student privacy, free speech rights, teacher evaluation, collective bargaining, and issues relating to Internet and technology. Revision of materials dealing with education policy and updating of references and case law throughout. A companion website with materials for students and instructors, including links to full cases, a glossary of key concepts, and discussion questions to help students further engage with the content.
