dc.description.abstract Active pupil participation in the classroom is important mainly for two reasons. Firstly because people learn more when they are involved than when they are not; Secondly because pupil participation is a democratic way of social association, an aim which is also pursued in the wider national framework. When a need for greater pupil involvement and participation was identified at our school, the idea originated to survey the problem and attempt to improve the situation. With this research it was hoped: to generate ideas for alternative learning methods; to focus attention on what actually happens daily in lessons; to direct the whole school more to inter-communication, and to improve and facilitate mutual interaction in the school. Action research was seen as the most appropriate research method to investigate the problem regarding pupil participation. The aim of action research as such is firstly to improve the practitioners practice, their understanding of the practice, and the situation in which the practice takes place. Action research also aims to involve those affected by the research. The investigation into pupil participation was seen as a school improvement project. Thus the whole school, all teachers and pupils, had to be involved in the research. In order to provide pupils with better guidance the teachers had to be better equipped through, among others things, an in-service training session. In order to encourage active student participation in the classroom, an experiment was conducted in which teachers had to prepare at least two lessons with the aim of greater student involvement in mind. Reports were then compiled by teachers for further discussion and structuring. Factors which influenced active participation in the classroom were highlighted. In general the benefits and advantages of the research lie in the encouraging of a sensitive, practical and democratic approach. Some of the problems and handicaps encountered in the research lie in the personal involvement and lack of applicable knowledge of the researchers as well as in the wider context in which the research was conducted. en
