Action Research is the process of identifying a problem within your school or teaching environment, researching possible solutions, implementing one or more of those solutions, and observing the outcome within your specific environment. This type of research is crucial for teachers because it allows the teacher to be flexible while still relying on evidence to help students succeed.
Framing your problem will help you identify keywords to use when searching the literature and building your base of knowledge.
You can take a look at how this plays out in the example action research search plan document.
