Action Research

My action research proposal is going to be based on improved learning through playing games.   I would like to try and incorporate a variety of games, not just computer based in the classroom. I would use board games, file folder games, computer games, and whole class games throughout the research period. This would be conducted after whole group instruction and as centers in the classroom.
