You are asked to be a part of an action research project where surveys are created and sent home to the parents asking for their thoughts on the issue.You and your team of researchers hope to identify reasons why students are not completing their homework and then be able to share the results with all staff at your school to garner some conversation on how to improve the problem.
Once the surveys are completed, you will ask the school principal to review the surveys and assist in distributing them through the mail to all parents of children in the third grade at your school.
Step 3: Act to Implement a Plan You act by working with the other teachers, completing the surveys and having the school principal assist in mailing them out to all parents of the third grade students.
Step 4: Observe During this step of the action research process, you observe the groups of students working together.
You take note on how they are progressing and what types of issues they are having, watch them brainstorm and form interesting ideas and even observe some students not getting along, arguing and not participating altogether. Step 5: Reflect and Share This final step is the end point of action research... You have noticed that throughout the whole week of observing and watching your students work together, there were some things that just weren't working.
Step 2: Devise a Plan The plan includes creating a survey where both open-ended and multiple choice questions are used.
You will work with three other third grade teachers to determine the best choice of questions and layout of the survey.
After you've had time to observe the situation, the entire process of action research is reflected upon. While there are various methods to conducting action research, there are also various types of action research in the fields of education, including individual action research, collaborative action research and school-wide action research.
For example: We'll explore two examples of action research being used in the field of education.
