Action Research in Elementary Literacy Education

The M.S. students in Childhood Literacy Education are presenting their action research theses. Action research has been defined by Stringer (2004) as, " careful, diligent inquiry, not for purposes of discovering new facts or revising accepted laws or theories, but to acquire information having practical application to the solution of specific problems related to their work" (p. 3). The students at this poster session have drawn from their literacy internship placements in local elementary schools as the source for their action research. Stringer, E.
