Teacher as a researcher
This course focused on conducting action research in the classroom. Action research is used to help educators self reflect on their teaching practice by observing and monitoring a specific aspect of the classroom experience. While my research project did not affect my synthesis, the course taught me how to form a research question, gather data and analyze results. In addition, the research model resembles a spiral staircase so the emphasis is on reflecting upon the research to see if anything needs to be modified.
