Title: Researching Second Language Classrooms
Written By: Sandra Lee McKay
Series Title: ESL & Applied Linguistics Professional Series

This text introduces teachers to research methods they can use to examine
their own classrooms in order to become more effective teachers. Becoming
familiar with classroom-based research methods not only enables teachers to
do research in their own classrooms, it also provides a basis for assessing
the findings of existing research. McKay emphasizes throughout that what a
teacher chooses to examine will dictate which method is most effective.
Each chapter includes activities to help readers apply the methods
described in the chapter, often by analyzing research data.

"Researching Second Language Classrooms" is an ideal text for TESOL
research methods courses and an essential resource for inservice teachers
who wish to undertake classroom research.
