1. Introduction to the programme

2. Need and Justification

Action Research can also be used to analyze some of the characteristic of the teaching profession thereby facilitating thinking and introspection for making changes in attitudes, behavior etc. To help the elementary teachers and heads of institution find solution to classroom problems, training on Action Research need to be organizing so as to equip them with the procedures and methods on how to conduct such studies. Teachers during the training need to have a hands-on approach with the guidance of the resource persons, on the steps of conducting action research. They also need to follow up on the actual work which they will have to perform in their school and submit on the specified date to be given by the DIET.

Only two blocks of Jaiñtia Hills were selected for the programme, since it would involve the actual practical work on how to conduct action research in the respective schools of the teacher participants. The resource persons from the DIET will supervise the performances of the teachers in their respective schools. However, the same programme for the elementary teachers of the other blocks will be covered in the coming years.
