Action Research Topic
I am planning on devoting time tomorrow to my homework for this week. In my position, I work with the science teachers in 63 school districts in our region. I am having a hard time deciding how to approach this research project. I would like to focus on ELL students and raising their test scores, but I am not sure how to approach the project. Option 1 - I have one school that I work with in an instructional coaching capacity. I could design a project that works specifically with them. This would benefit this one school. Option 2 - I am drawn to the possibilities of the blog/technology and trying to figure out how I can use it to reach all/more of my teachers in the 63 school districts. Some of my schools are over 2 hours away and it is difficult for those teachers to receive professional development face to face. This option has the capacity to benefit hundreds of teachers/students. Any suggestions before I get started would be appreciated.
