Purpose

The purpose of this blog is to document the action research of a middle school teacher in Kentucky.  Action research can be defined as “any systematic inquiry conducted by teachers…or others with a vested interest in the teaching and learning process or environment for the purpose of gathering information about how their particular schools operate, how they teach, and how their students learn” (Mertler 2016 p 315).  Essentially, action research is performed by a party invested in students in order to gain perspective on a situation, and find a solution or method to enhance the educational experience of students.  I will be focusing on ESL students – specifically at the amount of communication that takes place between their home and teachers.
