Using the principles of action research, this course assists students in developing a series of research questions to explore in relation to the internship setting and the goals of the site’s school improvement plan. Students will prepare a research plan to answer these questions in the tradition of action research; they will carry out this research while in their full-time internship. Students will regularly reflect on the value of the data collection process and obstacles they may find themselves facing in the process, and to revise and redirect their project goals and procedures as necessary based on the realities of their classroom experiences. Prerequisite: EDUC 610.
