This week I continued my study of action research. After watching the videos of the scholars, I learned that I should never stop learning and using data. When selecting an area to study, I need to make sure that I am reaching a majority of students. I need to be able to produce results that will help increase student performance. My project needs to be something that is practical to me and something that I can apply directly to student learning. The purpose of my research must by something that I can apply and something I am interested in. The decisions I make as a teacher or administrator must be made based on data.
