Week 2 Reflection

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.

  1. That is a good synopsis of the purpose of action research studies, Lindsey. One of the most important things I tell my teachers all the time is teachers must never stop learning...we must evolve as education evolves.

  2. I listed some of the same things about the importance of choosing a project that is meaningful to me. If the topic is not very important to you, you are less likely to put forth effort in doing the research and you are less likely to use the results of the project to make changes in your school.

  3. I agree. I have taught 14 years and I'm definitely not the same person I was back then and I'm not even the same person I was five years ago. We must never stop learning and the world is constantly changing and as educators we have to keep up with those changes.
