Week Two Reflection
This week we watched various videos and read several pages on the numerous topics of action research in the school setting. The nine areas of passion did indeed prompt my first wonderings and revealed to me areas I had not previously considered. The information shared though the videos of the administrators also provided important tips for us as we conduct action research. When considering the various topics to choose from for my own action research project, the main concepts that stood out to me were in regards to not reinventing the wheel and choosing ideas that are practical and personal to me. As pointed out, we can always use what others have done as a resource to pick through to find a way to translate portions of it to fit into our own environment. In keeping it personal to what interests us individually and practical to our setting we can discover the good and bad of methods that others have tried and revamp it to fit our needs.
