Abstract

The objective of the study was to find out how successful the teachers were in formulating the topics of their classroom action researches after following a four- hour research proposal writing workshop. This phase of proposal writing activity was considered the most urgent among school teachers in Indonesia because most of them were not obliged to do researches until they were about to be promoted to be senior teaching staff members. The respondents of the study consisted of forty- two (42) teachers working for a junior high school in Yogyakarta Special Province, Indonesia. The instruments for collecting the data were the sheets of problem identification, particularly designed for assisting the teachers to begin writing their action research proposals. A descriptive quantitative technique was used to analyze the data. The results of the study showed that most respondents were not successful in formulating the topics of their classroom action researches.
