• Reminder that you will need a video taped segment for your final document and presentation. This only needs to be of one teacher in your group, There has been a purchase made of three digital video cameras and there is one available in each building, you will need to contact Linda when you are ready to video tape.
  • The video tape can be downloaded on your laptop. Once it is downloaded, you can use the Windows media program to select the portions of the video tape that you would like downloaded into your Action Research wikispace page. If you have taken video and you want to cut some of the content and only include part of it on your wikispace page, let us know if we can help you cut and edit it.
  • Work with group to discuss and document any data that has been collected for the Results part of your action research.(ITEDS and ITBS data should be available)
  • Report what our collected data means. (Results and Discussion---refer to each separate wiki page for explanations)
  • Download the Results, Discussion and video segment of your action research into your wikispace page.

The required components of your Action Research are:
  1. Literature Review
  2. Methodology
  3. Video of one lesson from your group
  4. Results
  5. Discussion

These documents can be uploaded into your wiki as separate items or as one, whatever works best for your group. The video can also be uploaded into your wiki----just let us know if you need help in getting this component completed.

On the May 4th professional development, we will use the time to present the different Action Research projects. These presentations will begin at 2:00 in the middle school music room.

Presentations need to be no more than 10 minutes for each whole group (example--Comprehension for Students with Reading Difficulties is two small groups and both groups will have 10 minutes together) presentation. Some ideas for presenting could include:
  • a powerpoint including 5-7 slides with each slide containing one of the components from your action research;
  • a verbal presentation including word documents (shown on the screen with the lcd projector) with the components from your action research;
  • a verbal presentation including your video taped lesson; or
  • any other format of presentation that your group feels would present your action research in the most concise, efficient, and informative way
