Week 2 Reflection
This week we continued our study of action research. Through the Dana text, I learned about where a principal might find their "wonderings" and questions. This helped me think about my own experiences, and how I could use action research on my campus now. After reading numerous examples in the book, I was able to come up with three topics of critical importance to propose to my principal as possible action research questions. I feel it was a valuable experience to go through each one and get my principal's view of each problem. I feel a huge sense of relief knowing that my proposed action research project was accepted by my principal, as this was something that I have been struggling with choosing. I chose to study the effectiveness of a new in school tutoring program for reading intervention. I've already begun some background reading of relevant literature and am looking forward to moving to the next step of the process.
