  • Data Analysis - koppenhaverd, Mon Oct 27 21:37
    After you have read ch. 6, join the discussion here. How do you see yourself using the strategies described here? To what benefit? With what frequency? Do you think you might adapt them and in what ways? What questions do you have about their application in your specific study?
  • Limited Class Time - noltja 65, Sun Nov 2 09:04
    After reading the chapter and applying it to our music research project, I couldn't help but wish that we had more time with our students. Our class meets for 45 minutes, once each week which seems minimal compared to lots of the other research projects. Will has figured out a way to have students engage in our music... more
    Data Analysis & Coding ??? - Melissa Boyd, Sat Nov 1 15:45
    After reading Ch. 6, two things really stood out to me. The first being the data summary. This really helped me when studying the data we have collected so far in our research project. It helped me to dig a little deeper into what the data was showing. It helped to keep things focused and provided a clear path to... more
    Data Analysis - catheyt, Thu Oct 30 17:20
    I actually was a bit relieved after reading this chapter. I am in a reading program for a reason!! Numbers is not my thing. Analyzing the data throughout the study makes the task seem more manageable. My partner and I have collected so much data through our field notes, that it will make it much easier to find the... more
    Data Collection - koppenhaverd, Sun Sep 28 21:37
    Share your initial thoughts on data collection here and give others feedback on their thoughts. This is your opportunity to run ideas up the flagpole and see how they fly.

  • Authentic Data - kimeljk, Thu Oct 2 11:58
    After going through many ideas and suggestions for data collection, I think it is easy to get overwhelmed with all the different types of data, what the data actually measures, and all the different ways in which you can collect data. But I guess I have a question of authenticity, how do you know if your data is... more
    Thoughts on Chpt. 5 - Chart/Recordings - Rachel Yakey, Wed Oct 1 20:58
    After reading chapter five, I found myself breathing a little easier. I think I had built up this data collection to be something huge but in reality it is just me teaching and reflecting on the process. I really like the chart the book describes in 5.1. In monitoring how differentiated interventions are helping... more
    Potential Areas of Research - koppenhaverd, Mon Sep 1 14:46
    1) Write two one-paragraph descriptions of two topics (in your classroom, teaching, student learning) that raise questions for you. Just describe them. 2) After others have added their descriptions, read through them and look for similarities between one or the other topic, a view of the world, between your... more

I will check in regularly, but you are also free to Skype me if you want a more immediate... more
  • Teacher Action Research - koppenhaverd, Mon Sep 1 14:28
    Discuss just what teacher research, or teacher action research, is. What do you understand clearly? What confuses you? What are key concepts? Key processes? Key actions? Key beliefs? Do NOT post ideas that others have already posted (i.e., we do NOT need 17 repetitive definitions of the concept). DO discuss one... more
  • My view of Action Research - sellewc, Sat Sep 6 16:59
    What is Action Research? In my mind, and as a music teacher, action research is a form of formative assessment for the profession. Rather than assessing the student, the intent of the research would be to discover certain aspects of pedagogy, or to address shortcomings of students and frame a sort of ‘experiment’ to... more
