GRADING RUBRIC HAS YET TO BE ATTACHED; AS SOON AS I HAVE ACCESS TO IT I WILL PROVIDE IT.

IF YOU WANT TO WAIT UNTIL THE GRADING RUBRIC IS ATTACHED THAT’S FINE; YOU CAN ALSO USE YOUR OWN REFERENCES OR WAIT UNTIL THIS CLASS OPENS SO I CAN GET THEIR RESOURCES. THIS WAS PROVIDED TO ME AS THEY ARE HAVING ISSUES WITH THE ONLINE PORTAL

THE ONLY THING THAT NEEDS DONE ON THIS IS THE PAPER SECTION. I WILL ATTACH THE POWER POINT MYSELF BUT HAVE INCLUDED IT FOR REFERENCE.

Assessment 1 Instructions: Action Research Proposal PowerPoint and 5 Ws

Description (2-4 pages) of your proposed action research plan indicating research question(s), participants, the setting, and timing for implementation of the action research project, and why the research is important.

Introduction

As a teacher, you are consistently reflecting on your own practice and trying to determine ways to improve outcomes for your students. You also look for ways to inform your practice—through professional development workshops, through collaborating with PLCs, and through reading about instructional practice. However, one of the most powerful ways to learn about the effectiveness of your instructional practice is through action research—investigating the outcomes of instructional interventions through cycles of planning, conducting the intervention, observing the effects, and reflecting on practice. In this assessment you will examine the 5 Ws (what, who, when, where, why) of your action plan design and consider what is causing you disequilibrium in regard to conducting action research. In other words, what do you know, and about which aspects of action research are you unsure?

Demonstration of Proficiency

By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and assessment scoring guide criteria:

Instructions

Submit the action research proposal PowerPoint presentation you completed as part of the Action Research to Enhance Practice course, along with responses to the prompts outlined below. Take time to review the action research plan presentation, and make any modifications or updates to it prior to submitting.

The remainder of your assessments in this course are based on the implementation of your action research plan.

Think about the 5 Ws of your proposed plan. It is important you are able to clearly articulate these and explain in a scholarly way what you are researching. Write 2–4 page description of your action research plan by responding to the following:
