Action Research – A Paradigm for Achieving Social Change


Our project seeks to make several contributions to action research traditions. We applied the action research paradigm to help solve a serious contemporary problem. We used the paradigm in conjunction with contemporary schools operating under all the opportunities and constraints found in public educational systems today. We further wished to demonstrate the ability of contemporary adolescents to participate in and benefit from action research. We wished to contribute to knowledge about the university and the public secondary school system as partners in action research. And finally, and most important for this journal, we wished to have action research demonstrated as an important model for adding to our knowledge of small group theory and practice.
