Abstract: First paragraph: Problem solving has come to be seen as a central feature of teaching and learning in most educational settings. As regards skills based curricula, problem-solving is perhaps the “thinking skill” par excellence. Indeed, teachers themselves are often seen and, indeed, see themselves as problem solvers: How do I get Alice to focus on her work and learn? Which strategies will help me overcome her apparent indifference? Alice’s failure is a problem I must help her to overcome – she will then be a successful learner. Teachers engaged in what is variously called action research, practitioner research and teacher research are enquiring into their own practice so as to solve problems in the classroom.
