Abstract [en]

I shall demonstrate my conduct of action research at Grades four and eight in Sweden. By drawing on cultural-historical and/or Vygotskian perspectives, I shall explore the nuances of its theory/practice approach with three examples from ongoing classroom practices. In the first I shall draw on the theory of explicit mediation1 to rectify the faulty use of the = sign by students and share my collaboration with a teacher at Grade four. In the second, I shall draw upon exploratory talk and report my work with the same teacher in relation to the topic of measurement, within a project on communication and mathematics for which she had obtained funding. Finally, I shall present my conduct of an action strategy with two teachers at Grade eight, situated as their classrooms and school were in a wider environment facing consequences of global recession. In doing so I attempt to unravel the interplay between existing research/theory and situated practice, which together informed the taking of collaborative educational action as practitioners.
